Project Details


The functional approach is proposed by UNCITRAL in its Model law on e-commerce (1996) to suppress formal obstacles to e-commerce and to give an open conception of notions such as signature, writing or original, considering them with regard to their function and not to their medium. The aim of the thesis is to construct the theory of the functional equivalent: tracing its origins, designing its methodology and studying the way it has been or should be implemented in the field of e-commerce.
