A contract is entered into, amended or terminated by the simple consent of the parties, without further conditions. 4. Parties who choose UNIDROIT`s principles such as the legislation applicable to their contract or the legislation applicable to the content of the dispute are well advised to combine such a choice of law clause with an arbitration agreement. National courts are bound by the Forum`s rules of private international law, which traditionally and still mainly limit the parties` freedom of choice to national serschadets, so that an alleged choice of non-governmental rules such as the principles of UNIDROIT is not seen as a legal choice, but as an agreement of inclusion in the treaty. (**) The consequence of this treatment of non-governmental rules is that they bind the parties only to the extent that they are not in contradiction with the applicable rules of domestic law, to which the parties cannot deviate by mutual agreement (see Type 2, comment 5, infra, p. 15) for certain examples of such “ordinary” binding provisions of applicable national legislation. However, in international commercial arbitration, parties are now generally allowed to choose “soft law” instruments, such as the principles of UNIDROIT, such as “rules of law” on which arbitrators must base their decisions. (***) Accordingly, in the context of the arbitration procedure, the principles of UNIDROIT apply in their scope, to the exclusion of a specific national law, subject to the application of the provisions of domestic law which are binding, regardless of the law governing the contract; Since these mandatory “general rules” are mostly public in nature (for example. B the prohibition of corruption, stock market control rules, rules on cartels and abuse of dominance, environmental protection rules, etc.), their application with the principles of UNIDROIT generally does not lead to real conflict. (1) A party is free to negotiate and is not responsible for the failure of an agreement. (3) It is particularly in bad faith when a party engages in or continues negotiations when it intends not to reach an agreement with the other party. 2.
The transfer of a right to another benefit is inoperative if it is contrary to an agreement between the assignee and the debtor that limits or prohibits the transfer. However, the assignment is effective if, at the time of the assignment, the assignee did not know or had not had to know the agreement. The assignee can then be held liable to the debtor for breach. 2. Under the applicable rules of procedure, parties may do so by separate agreement before or after the opening of the legal proceedings or arbitration. 6. The parties may also refer to the principles of UNIDROIT in the context of conciliation. However, in such a case, the conciliator will only use the principles of UNIDROIT as a guide if he formulates the terms of a possible transaction agreement that may be subject to the approval of the parties. A written contract containing a clause stating that the letter contains all the conditions on which the parties have agreed cannot be rebutted or supplemented by evidence of prior statements or agreements.
