The author of this text provides a fresh comparative approach towards key issues, as well as examining the various theories that have been devised to explain the ways in which different approaches have been justified. This comparative discussion highlights the strengths and weaknesses of particular jurisdictions’ treatment of the conflict of laws and uses this to develop an understanding of these differences. This is essential knowledge in preparing for the jurisprudential approach likely to be applied in those jurisdictions in overseas practice and litigation. Of particular relevance is the consideration of the divergence between courts in the United Kingdom (because of its membership of the EU), the United States (which has, for nearly 200 years pursued a more jurisprudential approach) and Australia.

In the current environment of increasing globalisation, the book will be of great benefit to practitioners and litigators involved in cross-jurisdictional matters, while its scholarly and authoritative analysis will engage and inform researchers and students of conflict of laws, comparative law and jurisprudence.


  • Unique analytical and doctrinal approach to conflict of laws
