James Devenney, Mel Kenny

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Discusses the exclusion of personal property law from the European Commission's draft Regulation on a common European sales law (CESL). Examines the background to the CESL and reflects on the implications of omitting property law from its scope, including the political significance of such a step, and whether the strategy represents a missed opportunity to strengthen consumer protection.
