The Modernization of Civil Law Institutions: Civil Liability, Property and Contract
This work analyzes the treatment and contributions of Latin American law to specific problems that are the object of continuous discussion in the doctrine and jurisprudence.
To this end, the authors identify as principal issues of concerns: strict liability for hazardous activities in Colombian jurisprudence and in European tort law, the method of property transfer of merchandise in international trade, and contract withdrawal in European and American civil codes.
The choice of a comparative study approach is dlle to the innovative proposals in contract and tort law adopted in some of the most important harmonization documents of European lawthat have been published since the middle ofthe twentieth century, These serve as reference sources for Latin American academics who seek to project the reach and evolution of contract and liability law within the Roman-Germanic tradition, as related to the current needs of Latin American law.
Thus, some ofthe civil liability problems this research book examines related to property and contract reveal the breadth and detail oftheir treatment, in order to propose an enriching debate to visualize a general perspective of its morphology and treatment.
