Jonathan Harris and Campbell McLachlan are the editors of Essays in International Litigation for Lord Collins (OUP, 2022). As its title makes clear, this is a collection of essays written to honour Lawrence Collins, who was a leading practitioner (partner at Herbert Smith, then judge, eventually on the UK Supreme Court), but also the general editor of the leading English work on private international law, Dicey, Morris and Collins on the Conflict of Laws.
This book contains a collection of essays written by many jurists who have been privileged to count Lawrence Collins as friend, mentor, and colleague over the course of a remarkable career of more than fifty years in practice and at the Bench. Lawrence’s own contribution is coincident with the rising importance in practice of issues in the conduct of international litigation. It also considers cross-border litigation as it is developing globally and the role of the national judiciary in international cases. The book highlights the reshaping of English private international law, particularly following the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. It also discusses the development of international arbitration and the impact of public international law.
The contributors include Jonathan Harris, Horatia Muir Watt, Fausto Pocar, Hans van Loon, Elizabeth Gloster, Campbell McLachlan, David Lloyd Jones, Richard Aikens, Andrew Dickinson, Trevor Hartley, Alex Mills, Jonathan Mance, Linda Silberman, Frank Iacobucci, David McClean and Peter North.
