The irruption of International Business Law (IBL) or the Uniform International Trade Law has produced a series of "waves" in the Colombian legal system. It has been attributed to the private autonomy of the will, as a principle protected by IBL, the authority to replace the government power of protecting the interests of society. However, despite this principle has existed for centuries, currently it has been subject of reinterpretation. This paper will specifically approach the 'Reconstruction' of this principle from the jurisprudence of the Colombian Constitutional Court perspective and from the academic proposal of the Colombian Professor Diego Eduardo López Medina
