The Reform of the Law of Sales
AbstractThe Law governing the sale of goods in Canada and Australia is based on the English Sale of Goods Act of 1893. This Act has rarely been amended and is very much out of touch with modern conditions. The author feels that a mere amendment of this Act is insufficient to update the law and that what is needed is a complete redrafting of the Act. As a starting point for reform he points out the defects of the present Act, and analyzes the solutions offered by the revolutionary American Uniform Commercial Code and the Uniform Sales Act.
