Regulatory Competition in Contract Law and Dispute Resolution

Edited by: Horst Eidenmuller

In many regions of the world and across various fields, the law has become a 'product.' Individuals and companies seek attractive legal regulations, while countries advertise their legal wares globally as they compete for customers. To analyze this development and to develop policy recommendations with respect to contract law and dispute resolution, a conference was held in Munich in October 2011, bringing together leading scholars from the US and Europe. This book contains the papers and main comments produced for the conference. The chapters include important papers on, inter alia, law and economic theory, legal transplants, theories of private law, choice of law, the characterization of contract law, and the US and English civil procedural traditions. The book is an important and useful study for an area of growing importance.
