Zeller, Bruno (2003) The Parol Evidence Rule and the CISG [1] - A Comparative Analysis. Working Paper. Pace Law School, New York, USA.


The ascendancy of international commercial laws in the form of conventions and model laws has changed the contractual landscape significantly and can be viewed as a sea change in contract law. A knowledge of international contract law has become imperative considering that through ratification the CISG has become part of our domestic law. Perry Eng P/L (Rec and Man appt'd) v Bernold AG [2] in a general sense illustrates this problem well. The facts are simple. An Australian buyer sued the Swiss manufacturer for supplying defective goods in the South Australian Supreme Court. A clause in the contact, in brief, stipulated that the laws of South Australia govern the contract.
