Thoroughly revised and updated, this third edition of EU Private International Law incorporates many developments in legislation and case-law since the publication of the second edition in 2010. Building on the book’s reputation for comprehensive coverage and attention to detail, Peter Stone provides an authoritative and accessible introduction to the subject.

The book provides full analysis of the revised version of the Brussels I Regulation (in the form of Regulation 1215/2012), and gives attention to the proposed regulation on matrimonial property and the proposed revision of the regulation on insolvency proceedings. It considers issues relating to the harmonization of conflict of laws at the European Union level, and offers a critical assessment of developments across the main areas of concern.

With the considerable advancement in this area of law since the first and second editions, academics, students and practitioners interested in international litigation in matters governed by private law will find the up-to-date coverage offered by this new edition of EU legislative measures in the sphere of private international law to be essential reading.
