The Hague Principles on Choice of Law in International Commercial Contracts

Abstract

This paper focuses on analysing the most important provisions of the Hague Principles on Choice of Law in International Commercial Contracts[1], which represent the first normative soft-law instrument developed and approved by the Hague Conference on Private International Law.[2] This novelty in private international law and in the field of contract law, provides significant changes in the applicable law in international commercial contracts. The paper aims to review the Hague Principles with a special focus on the principle of “party autonomy” and choice of law and the way these concepts are elaborated within the Hague Principles.

Keywords: Hague principles, choice of law., international commercial contracts, party autonomy
