Reincarnation of an own international judicial system discussed at the UFS
2008-09-11

Prof. Elizabeth Snyman-Van Deventer from the Department of Mercantile Law at the University of the Free State (UFS) recently delivered her inaugural lecture on the reincarnation of the lex mercatoria on the Main Campus in Bloemfontein. She is the first female professor in the Faculty of Law at the UFS. In her inaugural lecture she investigated whether the international trade is currently governed by the new or modern lex mercatoria. “Indeed there exists a set of unique rules for the international trade which stretches over national borders and which establishes an own international judicial system, the so called new lex mercatoria,” said Prof. Snyman-Van Deventer.
