Dr Reza Beheshti awarded research scholarship by the Max Planck Institute for Comparative and International Private Law

Dr Reza Beheshti

Reza’s research project is a comparative and normative analysis of anticipatory breach of contract under English law, Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) and UNIDPROIT Principles. During his time at the Max Planck Institute, Reza will conduct comparative research focusing on differences between English law and the position under the UCC and the UNIDROIT. His central enquiry will be on the extent to which the related principles under English law should be modified and developed to embrace and satisfy the particular needs of commercial parties contracting in an international context.
