Guide to Researching the CISG

Finding Secondary Sources on the CISG

Note that "United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (1980)" is a Library of Congress subject heading that can be used on TALLONS. Of course, searching by keyword is also possible.

Articles on the CISG can appear in all kinds of law journals. As of April 2020, a keyword search on the name of the Convention returned over 400 results in the Index to Legal Periodicals.
