The TransLex Website and its „very exhaustive list of 130 general principles of the New Lex Mercatoria” is mentioned in the ICC’s recent study on “Developing Neutral Legal Standards for International Contracts”.
A new Principle was included in the TransLex-Principles relating to the severability of contract provisions. That Principles reflects a standard practice in the drafting of international business contracts.
The famous (and lengthy!) dissent by Sir Alexander Cockburn of September 14, 1872 in the Alabama Claims Arbitration is now available in the Materials Section. A very special thank you goes to TransLex Team-Member Jakob Fleischmann for his unprecedented one-year-effort to prepare this text for inclusion in TransLex!
