New Transnational Commercial Law Website
Hat tip to Mirela Roznovschi, Reference Librarian for International and Foreign Law at New York University Law Library for calling attention to TransLex via law-lib. TransLex is a free research and codification platform for transnational commercial law that was recently launched by The Center for Transnational Law (CENTRAL) at Cologne University. TransLex can be used in different ways. You can search the entire website or browse through any of the four Sections of TransLex: Principles, Bibliography, Materials or Links. From the site description:
The TransLex-Principles contain more than 120 principles and rules of transnational law, the New Lex Mercatoria. Go through the list or use the "Jump to"-box to get to a specific Chapter. Click on the Principle of your choice and get its black letter text and access to many full-text references such as domestic statutes, legal doctrine, uniform law instruments, court decisions and arbitral awards.
TransLex-Bibliography is a selected collection of bibliographic references on transnational law organized in alphabetical order. If a text is contained in TransLex, you can click on it and you will be directed to the respective TransLex-document.
TransLex-Materials is a collection of domestic statutes, international conventions, model laws, restatements and other soft-law instruments which are of relevance for anybody doing research in transnational law and international business law.
TransLex-Links are a selected collection of links to sites which are relevant for anybody doing research in transnational law and international business law.
CENTRAL’s research activities are devoted to the law and practice of transnational business law, to the new Lex Mercatoria and to international dispute resolution. By launching this site, CENTRAL now makes available its expertise on resources available for researchers. [JH]

The "Materials" section seems of limited value, because it appears to contain just excerpts, not complete full text, of most documents.
