Twenty years have already gone by since Part I of the Principles of European Contract Law (PECL) was published and more than ten since the whole project was completed. The PECL, together with Law enacted by the European Union (and its predecessors) have fostered an intense activity among scholars in respect of the so-called European Contract Law. A new ius commune in this field seems to be increasingly accepted across the continent and subsequent proposals on Uniform rules for Contract Law have driven the attention of stakeholders. Among these projects, but not only, the Draft Common Frame of Reference (DCFR) or the Proposal for a Regulation on a Common European Sales Law (CESL).
