Conflict of Laws is a field of law which is not very widely known to the ordinary law practitioner. It has to be considered only if a particular litigation has a foreign element as, for example, when the contract in issue was entered into in another country or was to be performed in another country. This is only one example, and there are numerous other situations where the principles of confl ict of laws may have to be applied: if parties were married abroad; if the deceased was domiciled abroad; if the company was incorporated abroad, etc. Resort to the rules of confl ict of laws may be necessary in the most diverse situations. This branch of law is likely to be of growing importance in India as there is increasing international trade, more cross-border investment and, more Indians live and settle outside India. This book covers the subject extensively. It considers international conventions in the field, the law in England, the law in some Common Law countries and the law in India. Apart from some provisions in the Civil Procedure Code relating to the enforcement and execution of foreign judgments, and the laws relating to foreign awards, there are few Indian decisions on the subject. It is, therefore, absolutely necessary to consider the rules of law developed in England and other Common Law countries as well as the international conventions laying down confl ict of laws rules in several fi elds. Such conventions offer guidance to our courts as they law down what our Supreme Court has called ‘transnational’ rules of law. There is a detailed synopsis at the beginning of each chapter setting out its contents in detail: this should be useful to the busy practitioner. The book should find its place in the library of any lawyer practising Civil Law in India.
