1. Private International Law series

    Series editor: Symeon C. Symeonides, Alex L. Parks Distinguished Chair in Law and Dean Emeritus, Willamette University, US and Member, Institut de Droit International

    This series is a mini-library that is an indispensable resource for any serious researcher of private international law or conflict of laws. It brings together in separate thematic volumes those private international law writings which were path-breaking at their time and remain classic to date. Each volume is constructed and edited by a distinguished contemporary scholar under the direction of the series editor. The series provides in-depth coverage of the three traditional branches of private international law, namely, jurisdiction, choice of law, and recognition and enforcement of judgments, but also covers arbitration and topics that straddle the permeable boundary between private and public law.

  1. Forum Shopping and International Commercial Law

    Forum Shopping and International Commercial Law

    Edited by Franco Ferrari, Aaron D. Simowitz
    Commentators and courts disagree on such fundamental issues as the definition of forum shopping and whether it is an ‘unsung virtue’ or an untrammelled vice. Disagreements persist on how to deal with ‘virtuous’ forum shopping or how best to proscribe “evil” forum shopping, if such a distinction can at all be made. The articles reprinted in this three-volume collection illuminate, explore and contest these questions. Volume I analyses the definitions and purposes of forum shopping, the right and duty to practise it and how it relates to private international law. Volume II focuses on the link between forum shopping and uniform substantive law as well as discussing jurisdictional issues and arbitration. Volume III investigates defamation, intellectual property and competition law, as well as examining insolvency proceedings along with treaty shopping. Together with an introduction by the editors, this collection provides a comprehensive overview of the topic and will prove useful to academics, students and practitioners alike. Learn More

  7. Private International Law and Public law

    Private International Law and Public law

    Edited by Horatia Muir Watt
    The conspicuous absence of private international law from the current global governance debate may be traced in part to its traditional ‘public law taboo’, fed by liberal understandings of statehood and its characteristic public/private divide, in the context of the modern schism between the public and private branches of international law. Alongside an original introduction, the materials assembled in this important collection are of immediate interest to both public and private international lawyers, and more broadly to all those interested in new forms of global governance and the theory of law beyond the state.

  8. Jurisdiction and Private International Law

    Jurisdiction and Private International Law

    Edited by Patrick J. Borchers
    In an increasingly globalized and digitized world, transactions, communications and data flow freely across national borders.

This two-volume collection provides a survey of personal jurisdiction across both time and legal systems. It includes articles ranging from the early 20th century to present day and to the problems created by jurisdiction in cyberspace. It also examines the jurisdictional premises of major common law countries and those in the civilian tradition. With an original introduction by the editor, these comprehensive volumes will appeal to scholars and practitioners alike. Learn More
