Conflict of Laws as Taxonomy: A New Approachoffers a unique analytical and doctrinal approach to the conflict of laws. Its purpose is to review and assess the traditionally accepted methodology and taxonomy used in the resolution of cross-jurisdictional matters and to suggest alternative ways in which such matters may be classified, with resulting practical application to the conduct of cross-border disputes. Format: Paperback The author of this text provides a fresh comparative approach towards key issues, as well as examining the various theories that have been devised to explain the ways in which different approaches have been justified. This comparative discussion highlights the strengths and weaknesses of particular jurisdictionsoÂeÂ(tm) treatment of the conflict of laws and uses this to develop an understanding of these differences. This is essential knowledge in preparing for the jurisprudential approach likely to be applied in those jurisdictions in overseas practice and litigation. Of particular relevance is the consideration of the divergence between courts in the United Kingdom (because of its membership of the EU), the United States (which has, for nearly 200 years pursued a more jurisprudential approach) and Australia. In the current environment of increasing globalisation, the book will be of great benefit to practitioners and litigators involved in cross-jurisdictional matters, while its scholarly and authoritative analysis will engage and inform researchers and students of conflict of laws, comparative law and jurisprudence. Features oÂeo Unique analytical and doctrinal approach to conflict of laws oÂeo Detailed comparative examination of the approaches across UK, US and Australian jurisdictions oÂeo Extensive review of case law Related LexisNexis Titles Davies, Bell & Brereton, NyghoÂeÂ(tm)s Conflict of Laws in Australia, 9th edition, 2014 Mortensen, Garnett & Keyes, Private International Law in Australia, 3rd edition, 2015

Among the developments considered are the legal changes that have resulted from the demise of the Soviet empire and of ?socialist ? law; the continuing impact that both European Community law and regional human rights law have had on the internal legal systems of European countries; concomitant tensions toward a revised ?common law of Europe? and toward a closer ?convergence? between civil and common law systems; and renewed attention to the methodological problems faced by comparative law, in part because of these other developments.
