This paper gives a general overview of the law of international commercial sales contracts. To this end, the paper starts by examining which rules may apply to such contracts. The various sources of law are reviewed, starting from international conventions unifying substantive rules to conventions unifying conflict of laws rules. Inco-Terms are also analyzed, as are general usages relevant to international commercial contracts. In a second part, the paper focuses on the Vienna Sales Convention. It outlines the scope of application of the convention and also focuses on how the Convention should be interpreted.
