This essay examines the ability of the recentlyproposed Common European Sales Lawto meet its goal of increasing cross-border tradeacross the Common Market, in light of itsdeeply realist jurisprudenceandits extensivereliance on the concepts of tradeusageandgood commercial practice. It concludesthat a more formalisticstatutethatprovidedmenus of clear contract default rulesandencouraged a jurisprudential approach similartothatadoptedby New York Courts, would have a better chance than the CESL of increasing cross-border trade, especiallyamong small and medium sizeenterprises.
