This is the twelfth edition of a detailed, practical exposition for students of private international law. Recent legislation (Choice of Law in Torts, Choice of Law in Marriage and on Domicile) is included and the chapters have been revised and shortened.
"Cheshire and North's Private International Law" should be invaluable for the practitioner as well as being the leading student's textbook in its field, providing within a manageable compass a clear exposition of basic principles for this popular law school option. It provides students, teachers and practitioners with not only a work of stimulating erudition, but also with a thorough and practical guide to the whole complex subject of private international law. The 12th edition has been revised and updated throughout. The chapters on Contracts and Trusts have been rewritten to take account of, respectively, the Contracts (Applicable Law) Act 1990 and the Recognition of Trusts Act 1987. Developments in Europe, embodied within the Civil Jurisdiction and Judgements Act 1991 and recent case law from the European Court of Justice and the English courts have also been incorporated into the text. Recent decisions in the field of family law have been fully discussed and there is a full treatment of the law reform proposals from the Law Commission and elsewhere.
