European Private International Law

By Geert Van Calster

Useable both as a student textbook and as a general introduction for legal professionals, European Private International Law is designed to reflect the reality of legal practice throughout the EU. Member States are increasingly regulated by the EU in this area of law, making private international law ever less 'national' and ever more statutorily based. Consequentially, EU law in this area has penetrated national law to a very high degree, making it an essential area of study for European law students and an area of increasing importance to practicing lawyers throughout the EU. This book provides a thorough overview of core European private international law, including the Brussels I, Rome I, and Rome II Regulations (jurisdiction; applicable law for contracts and tort). Additional chapters deal with current and cutting-edge developments in the areas of private international law and insolvency, information, communications and technology, corporate social responsibility, and intellectual property.
