“Thirty Years of Lex Mercatoria: Towards the Selective Application of Transnational Rules”, 10 ICSID Review 208 (1995).
Thirty years ago, Berthold Goldman published his celebrated article entitled “Frontières du droit et lex mercatoria". In the same year, Clive Schmitthoff devoted an equally important study to the new law merchant in a collection of articles on the sources of international commercial law. Since then, the subject of lex mercatoria has given rise to an impressive body of legal writing.
