The nine essays collected here, some originally delivered as lectures, others written as law journal articles, have all appeared over the past fifteen years. They examine issues of topical importance in the three traditional areas of private international law: the jurisdiction of the courts, choice of the applicable law, and the recognition of foreign judgments. These areas are discussed with reference to a wide range of subject issues, in particular contract, tort, family law, and some aspects of property law. A major theme is reform and change, not only within the United Kingdom, but also as a consequence of developments within the European Community and in the light of proposals in the U.S. and worldwide.
