This book is a revised updated version of the General Course of Lectures on Private International Law delivered at the Hague Academy of International Law in 1990. The overall purpose is to examine the development & reform of choice of law rules in a number of common law jurisdictions. Much has been written about the 'Revolution' in conflict of laws in the U.S.A.; rather less account, however, has been taken of the major changes elsewhere in the common law world. This work serves to provide a critical account of those developments over the past few decades. Some changes are more recent & of international origin, such as the European Community Rome Convention (1980) on the law applicable to contractual obligations or the Hague Conventions on Child Abduction (1980), on Marriage (1978) & on Succession (1988), & consideration is given to their impact on common law jurisdictions. The process of change is a continuous one & attention is also devoted to current proposals for reform in the fields, for example, of domicile & torts.

Essays In The History Of Canadian Law

The essays in this volume deal with the legal history of the Province of Quebec, Upper and Lower Canada, and the Province of Canada between the British conquest of 1759 and confederation of the British North America colonies in 1867. The backbone of the modern Canadian provinces of Ontario and Quebec, this geographic area was unified politically for more than half of the period under consideration. As such, four of the papers are set in the geographic cradle of modern Quebec, four treat nineteenth-century Ontario, and the remaining four deal with the St. Lawrence and Great Lakes watershed as a whole. The authors come from disciplines as diverse as history, socio-legal studies, women’s studies, and law. The majority make substantial use of second-language sources in their essays, which shade into intellectual history, social and family history, regulatory history, and political history.

This book proposes a principled approach to the regulation of dispute resolution. It covers dispute resolution mechanisms in all their varieties, including negotiation, mediation, conciliation, expert opinion, mini-trial, ombud procedures, arbitration and court adjudication. The authors present a transnational Guide for Regulating Dispute Resolution (GRDR). The regulatory principles contained in this Guide are based on a functional taxonomy of dispute resolution mechanisms, an open normative framework and a modular structure of regulatory topics. The Guide for Regulating Dispute Resolution is formulated and commented upon in a concise manner to assist legislators, policy-makers, professional associations, practitioners and academics in thinking about which solutions best suit local and regional circumstances. The aim of this book is to contribute to the understanding and development of the legal framework governing national and international dispute resolution. Theory, empirical research and regulatory models have been taken from the wealth of experience in 12 jurisdictions: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, England and Wales, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland and the United States of America. Experts with a background in academia, practice and law-making describe and analyse the regulatory framework and social reality of dispute resolution in these countries. On this basis the authors draw conclusions about policy choices, regulatory strategies and the practice of conflict resolution.
