Private International Law

Private international law deals with issues of dealing with disputes that cross national borders in some respect.

What is private international law? 

Private international law regulates three main issues. 

  • Which court is competent to hear the case? (jurisdiction) 
  • Which country’s law should apply? (conflict of laws rules) 
  • should a judgment given in one country be enforceable in another country? (enforcement) 

Each State regulates these questions in its national legislation, but there are several conventions and international agreements that aim to harmonize existing legislation. However, because not all countries have the same rules, it is still possible that two courts in two different countries may consider themselves competent to deal with the same issue.  

Private international law often plays an important role in contract law, tort law, and family law.
