UNIDROIT INFORMATION SYSTEM OR DATA BANK ON UNIFORM LAW
Copyright © 2006
Of essential importance in the creation of a data bank are the sources of information. Without adequate sources of information it is not possible to create a viable data bank. Up-to-date and easily accessible information is of paramount importance. The different sources of information open to researchers include traditional paper-based publications, micro-fiche and micro-films, and data banks.
The International Institute for the Unification of Private Law (UNIDROIT) is an independent intergovernmental Organisation with its seat in the Villa Aldobrandini in Rome. Its purpose is to study needs and methods for modernising, harmonising and co-ordinating private and in particular commercial law as between States and groups of States and to formulate uniform law instruments, principles and rules to achieve those objectives.
