The harmonisation of private international law in Europe has
advanced rapidly since the entry into force of the Treaty of
Amsterdam. Most aspects of private international law are now
governed or at least affected by EU legislation, and there is a
substantial and growing body of case-law from the European Court as
well as the courts of the Member States. This timely Handbook
addresses key questions and problems that currently exist in the
rules of private international law laid down by European Union
regulations. Bringing together perspectives from both civil law and
common law traditions, the book mainly considers issues relating to
the Brussels I Regulation on civil jurisdiction and judgments, and
to the Rome I and II Regulations on choice of law in respect of
contractual or non-contractual obligations. Weaknesses in the
current law are identified, and suggestions are made for possible
improvements. The expert contributors focus on currently relevant
problems including some issues which have tended to be neglected.
Academics, law students and public officials interested in private
international law will find this Handbook to be a valuable
resource. Both practising lawyers and commercial lobbyists will
also find many useful insights.
