Covid-19 and UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts solutions

A webinar presented by the IBA Arbitration Committee, IBA European Regional Forum, IBA International Commerce and Distribution Committee, IBA Litigation Committee and supported by the IBA Corporate and M&A Law Committee

3 SEP 2020 1300 – 1400 BST

The performance of contracts, domestic and international, has been drastically affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. Parties and their lawyers, judges and arbitrators in different jurisdictions are struggling to find adequate solutions and contend with the various measures adopted as a consequence of the global health crisis.  

The UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts offer a set of worldwide reasonable and modern contract law rules that can assist in contractual drafting, interpretation and dispute resolution. UNIDROIT (the institution that adopted the Principles) and a number of IBA committees will present examples and case studies, and discuss interactively how the UNIDROIT Principles can help in this situation.
