English Private Law

Adrian Briggs

Oxford University Press

Private international law has two limbs. It determines when an English court has jurisdiction to adjudicate where one or more of the parties, or some component of the analysis, is not English, and it decides whether to give effect to the result of adjudication in a foreign jurisdiction: this amounts to the conflict of jurisdictions. It also determines whether an English court, hearing a case with some foreign element, will apply English or foreign law to the dispute: the conflict of laws. This chapter first looks at the rules governing the jurisdiction of an English court, then at the treatment of foreign judgments, and then at choice of law for the various substantive areas of law.

Keywords:   English law, English courts, jurisdiction, conflict of law, foreign law, foreign judgments
