On 17th December 2019, UNIDROIT entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Commercial Law Centre of the University of Nottingham School of Law to further research and work in areas of commercial law reform and development.
The International Institute for the Unification of Private Law (UNIDROIT) is an independent intergovernmental Organisation with its seat in the Villa Aldobrandini in Rome. Its purpose is to develop methods for modernising, harmonising and co-ordinating international private and commercial law and to formulate uniform law instruments, principles and rules. Its work facilitates trade, contributes to international sustainable development, promotes education, advances international cooperation and exchange, and closes cultural gaps.
As part of this MoU, both parties will seek to make efforts to further work in areas of common interest, by means of, but not limited to, promotion of UNIDROIT instruments at the Commercial Law Centre, participation of students from the University of Nottingham in the UNIDROIT Research and Internship Programme, and through general knowledge sharing, exchange of information, and documents.
