Nygh's Conflict of Laws in Australia 9th ed provides 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 wide-ranging subject matter includes international commercial dealings and other civil obligations, administration of estates and succession, international child abduction, adoption, proof of foreign law, and the recognition of same-sex marriages. It covers the legislation and civil procedure rules of all Australian jurisdictions as well as important common law developments.

The ninth edition has been comprehensively revised and updated. It includes discussion and analysis of many new cases, reflecting the growth of litigation involving international elements, particularly in areas of arbitration, enforcement of foreign judgments and cross border insolvency. Legislative changes include Australia's ratification of the Hague Service Convention in late 2010 and the enactment of the Trans-Tasman Proceedings Act 2010 (Cth) and the Australian Consumer Law.

The clear explanations of complex concepts make Nygh's Conflict of Laws in Australia an ideal text for both legal practitioners and students of conflict of laws or private international law.
