Synopsis

Private international law relates to litigation and private legal obligations that cross borders - whether national or state borders. The course includes the power of Australian courts to deal with international and interstate litigation, opportunities for and restraints on forum shopping, and the enforcement of foreign and interstate judgments. It also involves choice of law: the principles by which a court will apply the law of another country or state in nominated fields of contract, tort, marriage and divorce, and property law.
