Conflict of Laws Summary


Conflict of Laws by J. G. Collier (University of Cambridge)

This clear and authoritative introduction to the principles of a complex and rapidly changing area of the law now appears in a revised and updated form, with a completely new chapter on Trusts. The English conflict of laws is a body of rules whose purpose is to assist an English court in deciding a case which contains a foreign element. It consists of three main topics, which concern respectively: (i) the jurisdiction of the English courts, in the sense of their competence to hear and determine a case; (ii) the selection of the appropriate rules of a system of law, English or foreign, which it is to apply in deciding a case before it (the rules governing this selection are known as choice of law rules); and (iii) the recognition of and enforcement of judgments rendered by foreign courts, or awards of foreign arbitrations. It will continue to be a valuable text for students and practitioners alike.
