Edited by eminent banking law scholar Ross Cranston, this is a collection of essays written in honor of Roy Goode, the Norton Rose Professor of English Law at Oxford and highly esteemed commercial law scholar. The contributors, an international group of distinguished commercial lawyers, address topics including international contracts and sales, credit and security, and commercial arbitration. Making Commercial Law is a truly international collection that will be of great interest to scholars of commercial law worldwide, and to practitioners working in the areas of finance and international banking.

'It is difficult to imagine a collection of essays that in their exploration of issues of equal moment for both academic and practising lawyers could be a more appropriate tribute to the unique achievement of the man who provided their inspiration. Their study may accordingly be expected to be equally rewarding for both, as indeed for all interested in transnational commercial law.' "...this substantial volume...offers an entirely fitting tribute to its honorand..."Making Commerical Law" is replete with studies that will prove of considerable interest to all varieties of commerical lawyer. Ross Cranston is to be unstintingly congratulated on putting together this showcase of commercial scholarship and this reviewer has no hesitation in commending it to readers in highly enthusiastic terms."
