It is the branch of law that proposes to study standards and international commercial regulations. Globally, there is a huge amount of trade across different geographical areas, often with different practices. It is a question of seeing if there is harmonization and how this harmonization takes place. International trade law is essentially based on contract law. In other words, and much more precisely, international trade and business law can be defined as that which studies international contracts.

We provide you with the general principles applicable according to the “Lex Mercatoria”. This article makes it clear that all grounds for invalidity that are illustrated in the various national legal systems do not fall within the scope of the principles relating to the general international trade rules. This is the case of the incapacity of the parties, the lack of power of the parties, and the immorality or illegality of the contract.

Their exclusion is due both to the inherent complexity of questions of legal status, representation, and public order and to the extremely different way in which they are dealt with in domestic law. Consequently, issues such as the power of an intermediary to bind his representative or a manager to bind his company and the immoral or unlawful content of contracts will continue to be governed by applicable law.
