Sixteenth Edition of Dicey, Morris & Collins on the Conflict of Laws

The 16th edition of the Dicey, Morris & Collins on the Conflict of Laws, edited jointly by Lord Collins of Mapesbury (LLD, FBA) and Jonathan Harris KC (Hon.), has been published by Sweet & Maxwell.

Dicey, Morris & Collins on the Conflict of Laws deals with private international law issues. It explains the rules, principles and practice that determine how the law of England & Wales relates to other legal systems. Its commentary, rules and illustrations, with detailed reference to international conventions, legislation and case law, provide a compass for practitioners engaged in cross-border matters.

It is composed of two Volumes and a Companion Volume.

Volume 1 deals with general principles, the effects of withdrawal by the United Kingdom from the European Union, foreign affairs and the conflict of laws, procedural issues relating to international litigation, jurisdiction, recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments and arbitration. Volume 2 is about specific areas of law, such as family law, property law, succession and trusts, corporations and insolvency and the law of obligations.

Finally, a Companion Volume considers in greater detail the transitional issues arising from the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union and the relevant EU legislation in a number of key areas. It analyses the relevant transitional provision in the Withdrawal Agreement concluded between the United Kingdom and the European Union, as well as domestic legislation on transitional issues. It analyses the relevant EU law in areas likely to remain relevant for the foreseeable future, including in relation to lis pendens and the recognition and enforcement of judgments from EU Member States. It considers the relevant family legislation in the Brussels II bis and Maintenance Regulations. The Companion Volume also includes detailed coverage of relevant provisions of the recast Insolvency Regulation.
