Galexia’s article on the UN Convention on electronic contracting by Chris Connolly and Prashanti Ravindra has now been published in the Computer Law and Security Report. The Computer Law and Security Report is a journal dedicated to covering key developments in IT law and security.
The UN Convention seeks to enhance the legal certainty and commercial predictability of international electronic transactions by setting out a number of interpretive rules for the use of electronic communications in negotiating and forming contracts. The paper discusses the main provisions of the Convention and the impact of the Convention on the legal rules surrounding electronic contracting.
The final draft of the UN Convention is available as an annex to the UNCITRAL Report of its 38th Session at: <http://www.uncitral.org/uncitral/en/commission/sessions/38th.html>.
