The Conflict of Laws, also known as private international law, is a field of the greatest importance in an increasingly globalized world. The analysis of any legal issue, in a case involving more than one country, must start with an assessment of which court could potentially hear the case and which law it would apply. Contrary to other manuals or casebooks, which focus on the law of one jurisdiction, this innovative casebook offers a comparative treatment of the field. On each issue, materials from several jurisdictions are discussed and compared. The approach centers on comprehending the common principles of the field, but also highlights the fundamental differences. The goal is to train lawyers who not only will know the law of their own jurisdiction, but also will have an understanding of the key differences existing between the main models, and will thus be able to interact usefully with clients from other jurisdictions. This casebook systematically presents and compares the laws of four jurisdictions: the United States, the European Union, France and England (where left untouched by EU harmonization). It offers additional insight into rules applicable in China and Japan and also discusses remarkable solutions adopted in a wide range of jurisdictions such as Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, Canada and Tunisia. All materials from non-English speaking jurisdictions have been translated into English. Key features of the casebook: - written by a leading authority in the field - carefully selected extracts from primary and secondary sources build a clear picture of the field - expert analytical commentary and questions set the extracts in context - US, EU, French and English perspectives integrated throughout the text to ensure maximum relevance and encourage students to make comparative assessments - numerous references to Chinese and Japanese solutions - leads students through the field from beginning to end - perfectly pitched for international students and courses with a global outlook.

Litigating disputes in international civil and commercial cases presents a number of special challenges. Which country’s courts have jurisdiction, and where is it advantageous to sue? Given the international elements of the case, which country’s law will the court apply? Finally, if a successful plaintiff cannot find enough local assets, what does it take to have the judgment recognized and enforced in a country with assets? Advanced Introduction to Private International Law and Procedure addresses these questions through a comparative overview of legal systems, contrasting Anglo-American common law and the civil law approach of the European Union.

Conflict of Laws as Taxonomy: A New Approachoffers a unique analytical and doctrinal approach to the conflict of laws. Its purpose is to review and assess the traditionally accepted methodology and taxonomy used in the resolution of cross-jurisdictional matters and to suggest alternative ways in which such matters may be classified, with resulting practical application to the conduct of cross-border disputes. Format: Paperback The author of this text provides a fresh comparative approach towards key issues, as well as examining the various theories that have been devised to explain the ways in which different approaches have been justified. This comparative discussion highlights the strengths and weaknesses of particular jurisdictionsoÂeÂ(tm) treatment of the conflict of laws and uses this to develop an understanding of these differences. This is essential knowledge in preparing for the jurisprudential approach likely to be applied in those jurisdictions in overseas practice and litigation. Of particular relevance is the consideration of the divergence between courts in the United Kingdom (because of its membership of the EU), the United States (which has, for nearly 200 years pursued a more jurisprudential approach) and Australia. In the current environment of increasing globalisation, the book will be of great benefit to practitioners and litigators involved in cross-jurisdictional matters, while its scholarly and authoritative analysis will engage and inform researchers and students of conflict of laws, comparative law and jurisprudence. Features oÂeo Unique analytical and doctrinal approach to conflict of laws oÂeo Detailed comparative examination of the approaches across UK, US and Australian jurisdictions oÂeo Extensive review of case law Related LexisNexis Titles Davies, Bell & Brereton, NyghoÂeÂ(tm)s Conflict of Laws in Australia, 9th edition, 2014 Mortensen, Garnett & Keyes, Private International Law in Australia, 3rd edition, 2015

The Governing Law of Companies in EU Law

The manner in which the governing law of companies is determined has attracted much attention from academics and practitioners alike ever since the European Court of Justice began receiving references for preliminary rulings regarding the compatibility of protective conflict of corporate law norms with the EC Treaty provisions concerning freedom of establishment. Although recent developments have been less controversial than the ground-breaking judgment in Centros, they have not only consolidated the general thrust of liberalisation occasioned by the Court of Justice, but have added new dimensions to the regulatory landscape. These developments include amendments to the European constitutional order enshrined in the Lisbon Treaty, European legislation on cross-border mergers, the proposed statute for a European Private Company, the judgment of the Court of Justice in Cartesio and a Commission communication that contemplates the introduction of legislation on the governing law of companies. This book examines these recent developments and appraises the current law, as well as the foreseeable trajectory of the law, within a theoretical setting that addresses the socio-economic and legal-theoretical concerns associated with choices of the governing law of companies. In addition to considering the present and probable future state of EU law, the book also develops new theoretical perspectives and proposes novel solutions to long-standing dilemmas. In particular, it suggests that the use of information technology may render possible previously impossible compromises between party autonomy and the proper locus of prescriptive sovereignty.
