Hart studies in commercial and financial law.
"The reform of commercial law through harmonisation, unification, codification and other means remains one of the most important projects in developing the institutional architecture for the global economy. This edited collection engages with the challenges and contributes to a greater understanding of the problems faced by states, international organisations, and private sector actors in this ongoing reform project for commercial law. The volume takes stock of the project to-date and looks towards restructuring of the agenda to deal with new challenges. The primary aim of the collection is to understand the future of commercial law reform in a way that offers ideas and strategies for innovation in commercial law reform in substance as well as in methodologies for project selection and evaluation. In so doing, the collection informs the debate on the global reform of commercial law and will be of interest also outside of academia to those involved in the reform of commercial law around the world. The volume collects papers presented at the UK Society of Legal Scholars Annual Seminar 2017"-- Provided by publisher.
"The papers collected in this volume derive from a Society of Legal Scholars (SLS) seminar held at the College of St Hilde and St Bede at Durham University on 27-28 February 2017. The seminar was convened under the auspices of Durham Law School's Institute for Commercial and Corporate Law"--ECIP Introduction.
