EU Private International Law

An ECJ Casebook (Second Edition)

By Michael Bogdan, Ulf Maunsbach

This book provides an easy access to and an overview of the case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union (ECJ) pertaining to private international law. The book contains edited extracts from all ECJ decisions of immediate private international law relevance, made before October 1, 2006. Most of the cases deal with the original or amended versions of the Brussels Convention on Jurisdiction and the Enforcement of Judgments in Civil and Commercial Matters from 1968. These judgments retain their authority also with regard to the interpretation of Regulation No 44/2001 of December 22, 2000 on Jurisdiction and the Recognition and Enforcement of Judgments in Civil and Commercial Matters (the so-called Brussels I Regulation). The existing ECJ case law regarding other EU regulations and directives dealing with private international law, as well as a number of relevant judgments concerning the interpretation of the EU Treaties, are also included.
