Adjunct Professor Kyle B. Sill

Professor Sill co-authored an article with local Jacksonville attorney Robert Stone Jeffrey. Their article, Up, Around, Over, and Under: A Textual Approach for Busting Through the Supposed Privity Barrier of CISG Article 4, appears at 38 N.C. J. Int'l L. & Com. Reg. 697 (2013). The article presents a textual approach to defining the term "seller" in the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, the CISG, Article 4. Through a textual approach, they argue CISG Article 4 provides for a direct action from a commercial downstream buyer to a commercial upstream seller, without regard to privity.

In addition, Professor Sill's article Drafting Effective Noncompete Agreements and Other Restrictive Covenants: Considerations Across the United States, will appear in the next volume of the Florida Coastal Law Review, due out in August. It will appear at 14 Fla. Coastal L. Rev. (forthcoming Aug. 2013). The article addresses the necessary considerations to account for in drafting effective restrictive covenants in the employment context, no matter which state's law is applicable; the article also contains sample clauses for use in drafting effective agreements.
