Trade finance is of great importance in the commercial world, for both students (undergraduate and postgraduate) and practitioners. The choice of countries in export trade is often perception-based: trade with government departments or public institutions is seen as much safer than with private entities and the choice of countries is often based on that perception of risk.

Legal Aspects of Trade Finance provides a comprehensive approach to the issues relating to export trade and the methods of raising finance for such trade.  The obstacles that traders may encounter in providing trade across national boundaries are clearly identified, as are the risks parties to a trade contract should take into account. 

It explains the various methods of payment and types of finance, such as:

- Letters of credit; barter; bills of exchange

- Factoring; forfeiting; export credit guarantees

It also examines the role of international organizations and statutes, such as:

- ICC Uniform Rules for Collection

- UNIDROIT Conventions of International Factoring

This title is illustrated with examples from case law relevant to both developed and developing countries.  This book is suitable for both undergraduates and graduate students studying the interaction between law and commerce, and for transnational trade practitioners.
