« Private international law – Volume 1: general principles »

from November 28, 2013 to December 28, 2013

By Michel Attal and Arnaud Raynouard. “In compliance with the Master’s degree (1st and 2nd year) curriculum, this textbook describes a chapter of law that has been wholly reshuffled by the EU due to globalization”

Volume1 introduces the main topics of private international law with a view to outline the general principles and the methodology specific to this field of study:

  • Identification of the competent jurisdiction;
  • Definition of the applicable law or norm;
  • International effectiveness of judicial decisions and acts.

Volume 2 describes the solutions specific to each domain according to the classification of contemporary international private law: judicial acts, extra-contractual liability, personal status (including nationality and foreigners’ status), actual status…


This valuable approach provides highly performing educational tools: references to judicial doctrine, to case law and to international and European sources of law.
To date :

  • The new EU legal norms ;
  • The latest texts and decision concerning the non European private law relations.
