Abstract

There is no longer any ambition from the lawmaker to present law in a way accessible to the ordinary citizen. The target for lawmakers and the intended user of law is the professional lawyer (judges and legal counsellors). However, not only the ordinary citizen, but also the modern practicing lawyer faces problems in accessing the content of law. In this presentation, I will use CISG as an illustration of problems consisting of information overload, blind spots and misleading structures. I claim that the law needs to be presented in a new way in order to facilitate practitioners’ understanding of the law.
