Critical Acclaim
Acclaim for the first edition:

‘Hay’s book provides a splendid introduction to the field of European private international law and American conflicts law with respect to jurisdiction, choice of law, and the recognition and enforcement of judgments. […] While the book’s appealingly clear and logical structure is a boon to students of the field, its comparative flavour is definitely its most intriguing trait for academics. In short, Hay’s Advanced Introduction must not be amiss in law libraries or on student desks – and especially not on scholars’ collection shelves.’
– Tim W. Dornis, New York University, US. Review published in European Review of Private Law

‘Hay calmly and unpretentiously combines the confidence and authority gained in decades of scholarship with a well-balanced and open-minded regard for the key issues of our field and presents an Advanced Introduction in the best possible sense.’
– Dennis Solomon, University of Passau, Germany. Original review published in German in RabelZ
