Each day the media reports the rapid changes occurring around the world which have a significance for international law. The struggle for self-determination in the USSR and elsewhere, the attempts to control terrorism, the role of the United Nations, the cries for human rights, and the urgent need to protect the environment are all matters addressed by international law. However, too often the treaties, the resolutions, the statements, the cases and the other materials concerning these matters are not readily available to students of international law. Many are in United Nations documents, in national journals or in foreign government publications. As there is an increasing interdependence of the international community, it is important for this material to be easily accessible. This book is a complete collection of cases and materials and contains the material students generally need, covering both the well-established and the developing international law.

This book provides a comprehensive collection of legal materials relevant to the study of Private International Law. Its chief emphasis is to provide a compact source of materials for students and lecturers for whom these materials may otherwise be quite difficult to obtain. The choice of materials is very much based on the standard Conflict of Laws syllabus. The coverage extends to general concepts in private international law, family, succession, property law, jurisdiction and civil litigation, tort, contract, commercial law, and enforcement and recognition of foreign judgments.However, there is also some focus on less common subject areas such as international testacy, power of UK courts to assist in obtaining evidence for international proceedings, international arbitration, the Convention on the law applicable to trusts and on their recognition. The legal practitioner needing swift and easy access to a bulky area of law such as Private International Law should also find the book useful.This book is designed to be used in conjunction with any textbook on Private International Law at undergraduate, postgraduate or professional level
