Cheshire, North and Fawcett's Private International Law is invaluable for the practitioner as well as being the leading students' textbook in its field, providing within a manageable compass a clear exposition of basic principles for this popular law school option. It offers students, teachers and practitioners not only a work of stimulating erudition, but also a thorough and practical guide to the whole complex subject of private international law.

The new edition has been substantially updated to offer an up-to-date and authoritative account of the law in this rapidly changing field. As well as general updating, the chapter on Torts has been completely rewritten. Major developments in the law on jurisdiction and the recognition of foreign judgments have also been fully discussed. These changes will enable the new edition to sustain the place of this work as the leading English language student textbook on private international law.
