The substance of these lec tures has remained unaltered, but a number of insertions serve to cor rected some formal mistakes and misprints, added references to literature, some older, some more recent, without attempting to be exhaustive, and modified and supplemented the former exposition in two respects, where subsequent criticisms called for a review. The first concerns the place of public policy in Public International Law, the second deals with spatially-

This invaluable introduction to the study of the conflict of laws provides a survey and analysis of the rules of private international law as they apply in England. Written to take account of the various possible outcomes of the Brexit process, it goes as far as is possible to make sense of the effect it will have on English private international law. The volume covers general principles, jurisdiction, and the effect of foreign judgments; the law applicable to contractual and non-contractual obligations, the private international law of property, of adults (the increasingly complex law of children is described in bare outline), and of corporations. It does so in a manner which explains and illuminates the principles which underpin the subject in a clear and coherent fashion, as the wealth of literature, case law, and legislation can often obscure the architecture of the subject and unnecessarily complicate its study. This new edition organizes the existing material in light of European legislation on private international law, reflecting the way in which an accurate representation of the topic requires it to be interpreted as European law with a common law periphery, instead of common law with European legislative influences. As at the time of writing - and possibly for some time to come - the consequences of Brexit are a mystery, but the attempt is made to describe the various possible shapes which the subject will assume in the future. The book adopts a pragmatic approach and avoids the more abstract theory; as the theory of the conflict of laws is actually to be found in and by applying the legislation and jurisprudence to the cases and issues which arise in private international litigation and in giving legal advice.

The fifth edition of Clarkson & Hill's Conflict of Laws provides a clear and up-to-date account of the private international law topics covered at undergraduate level. Theoretical issues and fundamental principles are introduced in the first chapter and expanded upon in later chapters. Basic principles of the conflict of laws are presented in an approachable style, offering clarity on complex points and terminology without over-simplification. The fifth edition reflects the field's changing focus from case law to domestic and European legislation, incorporating the Brussels I Regulation and Brussels II Revised Regulation, as well as the more recent Rome Regulations and Brussels I Recast. Embracing this reorientation of the field and increased emphasis on the recognition and enforcement of judgments, the authors provide detailed commentary on the most important commercial topics as well as the most relevant topics in family law. Written in a succinct and engaging style, Clarkson & Hill's Conflict of Laws continues to provide clear analysis of the key areas of debate across jurisdictions.

This title was first published in 2001. After languishing for decades in the domains of rigid doctrinalism and confusing theory, the conflict of laws is increasingly being recognized as an important area of law to a global community. To demonstrate its importance, Michael Whincop and Mary Keyes transcend the divide between the English pragmatic tradition and the circularity of American policy-based theory. They argue that the law governing multistage conflicts can minimize the social costs of litigation, increase the extent of co-ordination, facilitate private ordering and limit regulatory monopolies and cross-border spillovers. Pragmatic in outlook and economic in methodology, they pursue these themes across a broad range of doctrinal issues and offer valuable links to parallel analyses in domestic contexts.

Conflict of laws, or private international law, is an increasingly important subject of study due to growing movement and relocation of a large number of people from one jurisdiction to another for personal and professional reasons. Despite the existence of rules and principles, there is a general uncertainty on issues such as commercial transactions, personal law subjects, and laws relating to property. The Conflict of Laws in India not only lucidly examines the inter-territorial conflicts, but also lays a special emphasis on inter-personal disputes in the Indian context. This book is a detailed and up-to-date study of conflict of laws, and focuses on its three main areas: the law of obligations, law of property, and law of persons. The volume also evaluates the role of various international instruments and conventions, including The Hague Conventions on Private International Law in resolving international conflicts. The author provides fresh perspectives on the subject, and analyses its significance in the dynamic contemporary world. This second edition elaborates on recent developments in two areas of the subject, namely Muslim law and the law relating to guardianship.

Beale, Joseph Henry. Bartolus on the Conflict of Laws. Translated into English by Joseph Henry Beale. Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 1914. 86 pp. Reprinted 2003 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. LCCN 2002038864. ISBN 1-58477-294-8. Cloth. $65. * Probably the first doctrine on the conflict of laws, this is a portion of Bartolus' commentary on Justinian's Code and its glosses, his Super Primam et Secundam Partem Codicis Commentaria. Copied often in manuscript, it appeared in print in 1471. It takes into account local customs and statutes, and contains what may be the first clear recognition of the principle that the lex loci governs the validity of a legal act. Bartolus also appreciated the distinction between laws effective only within the territory and laws that might have operation outside the territory, a distinction that assumed great importance in later continental writings on the subject. One of the great medieval commentators, Bartolus di Sassoferrato [1313-1357] was a professor of law at the University of Perugia. His authority as an expositor of Roman law was immense, and it endured for centuries. A practical lawyer, Bartolus attempted to derive principles suitable to his time from the accumulated layers of local, feudal and Roman law.
