The Conflict of Laws, also known as private international law, is a field of the greatest importance in an increasingly globalized world. The analysis of any legal issue, in a case involving more than one country, must start with an assessment of which court could potentially hear the case and which law it would apply.

Contrary to other manuals or casebooks, which focus on the law of one jurisdiction, this innovative casebook offers a comparative treatment of the field. On each issue, materials from several jurisdictions are discussed and compared. The approach centers on comprehending the common principles of the field, but also highlights the fundamental differences. The goal is to train lawyers who not only will know the law of their own jurisdiction, but also will have an understanding of the key differences existing between the main models, and will thus be able to interact usefully with clients from other jurisdictions.

This casebook systematically presents and compares the laws of four jurisdictions: the United States, the European Union, France and England (where left untouched by EU harmonization). It offers additional insight into rules applicable in China and Japan and also discusses remarkable solutions adopted in a wide range of jurisdictions such as Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, Canada and Tunisia. All materials from non-English speaking jurisdictions have been translated into English.

Key features of the casebook:


written by a leading authority in the field
carefully selected extracts from primary and secondary sources build a clear picture of the field
expert analytical commentary and questions set the extracts in context
US, EU, French and English perspectives integrated throughout the text to ensure maximum relevance and encourage students to make comparative assessments
numerous references to Chinese and Japanese solutions
leads students through the field from beginning to end
perfectly pitched for international students and courses with a global outlook.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'While comparison has always been important in the conflict of laws, it is crucial today, in a context of accelerated exchange and diversified societies. But the materials have become, correlatively, so abundant that teaching a satisfactory class in this field has become a considerable challenge. Cuniberti has selected and assembled the most significant sources from various legal traditions, and guides the student through each carefully constructed chapter by a series of questions, US case book style. An excellent pedagogical tool!' --(Horatia Muir Watt, Sciences-Po Law School, France)
