The eighth edition of Nygh's Conflict of Laws in Australia provides an authoritative and comprehensive coverage of the three main areas of private international law: jurisdiction, choice of law, and recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments and arbitral awards.

The section on jurisdiction and procedure has been expanded to reflect the increased significance in practice of disputes in those areas. The text also covers the legislation and civil procedure rules of all Australian jurisdictions as well as important common law developments.

Important Features:-

  • Provides clear explanations of complex concepts to help guide the reader through difficult issues
  • Each topic is introduced with substantial commentary which outlines the relevant issues and questions
