PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Dicey, Morris & Collins on the Conflict of Laws is renowned worldwide as the foremost authority on private international law. It explains the rules, principles and practice that determine how the law of England & Wales relates to other legal systems. Its commentary and illustrations, with detailed reference to case law, ensures it remains an in-depth but accessible research tool for practitioners engaged in trans-national work, whether litigious or not.

The 5th Supplement to the 15th Edition brings the main work up-to-date and deals with all the developments since the publication of the main work.

  • Deals with the rules for ascertaining the domicile and residence of a natural person
  • Looks at distinction between matters of substance and matters of procedure, remedies and process, evidence, set-off and counterclaims, priorities and damages, and statutes of limitation
