The European Private International Law of Obligations deals with conflict of laws as mediated by European rules and regulations. It provides unrivalled analysis of the Rome I and Rome II Regulations and their practical implications, helping practitioners interpret them since they came into force in 2009.

Between them the Rome Regulations comprise a common set of rules for the choice of law in international private law disputes, whether contractual or non-contractual. Practical knowledge of and guidance on the Regulations is essential for all practitioners involved in commercial transactions that involve European jurisdictions.

FEATURES

  • Takes practitioners step by step through the Rome Regulations
  • Explains the terms and concepts used in the Regulations
  • Provides warnings of problems that can arise and suggests answers to problems of interpretation
  • Discusses contracts of carriage, consumer contracts, insurance contracts, employment contracts, mandatory rules and ordre public, showing how Rome I applies to each
  • Covers the rules governing non-contractual obligations under Rome II, including product liability, liability for breach of competition rules, intellectual property, industrial action, environmental damage, unjust enrichment, negotiorum gestio and culpa in contrahendo
  • Puts the Regulations into their historical context, aiding their correct interpretation
  • Covers the implementation of the Regulations in the UK, recent European Court of Justice cases concerning other EC private international law instruments, and new decisions of the English courts
