Adjudicatory authority in private international law; a comparative study.


Adjudicatory authority in private international law; a comparative study.

Mehren, Arthur T. von.



382 pages



The Hague Academy of International Law monographs; v.5


This book is a revised an expanded version of the late Professor Arthur T. von Mehren's General Course on Private International Law, first published in 20002 under the title "Theory and Practice of the Adjudicatory Authority in Private International Law: A Comparative Study of the Doctrine, Policies and Practices of Common- and Civil- Law Systems" in vol. 295 of the Collected Courses (Martinus Nijhoff, 2002). Finished by Gottschalk (an associate with CMS Hasche Sigle in Hamburg, Germany specializing on corporate law) after von Mehren's demise, the text discusses foundational reasons for the existence of adjudicatory authority and its principal types; the design of jurisdictional provisions; the emergence of jurisdictional theory in the United States and Germany; the actor sequitur forum rei principle; consequences of splitting causes of action, participating as a litigant, and choice of forum agreements for consent and adjudicatory authority; forum non conveniens, antisuit injunctions, and lis pendens; and the role of international instruments in convergence and compromise in private international law.
