The realities of a global marketplace and shrinking political borders mean that the application and reach of law are seldom confined to a province, a country or even a continent. The field of conflict of laws, also known as private international law, concerns the mechanisms for addressing crossjurisdictional legal conflicts in regard to 3 major areas:

  • Choice of law
  • Choice of jurisdiction
  • Recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments

Newly and thoroughly revised, Halsbury's Conflict of Laws (2016 Reissue) analyzes and explains the broad range of conflict questions and rules impacting Canada's 14 jurisdictions, including issues such as:
