Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law Research Paper No. 2012-08
The paper introduces the DCFR, which is essentially the draft of a future EU Code of Obligations and works a bit like the UCC in the USA, as a model commercial code. After a brief historic justification of the draft, there is a presentation of what the DCFR can and cannot do at the present time. Finally, the potential effect of the DCFR if chosen by the parties of an international sales transaction is explained via a hypothetical.
