Jersey’s New Private International Law Rules for Trusts

Professor Jonathan Harris has written an article in the Jersey Law Review entitled, “Jersey’s new private international law rules for trusts – a retrograde step?” (Jersey L.R. 2007, 11(1), 9-19). Here’s the abstract:

Discusses amendments made by the Trusts (Amendment No.4) (Jersey) Law 2006 to the Trusts (Jersey) Law 1984. Criticises difficulties with the amendments on the scope of application of matters which are to be determined exclusively by the law of Jersey and the non recognition of foreign judgments.

In the same issue, Daniel Hochberg defends the amendments with a rejoinder to Professor Harris’ article: “Jersey’s new private international law rules for trusts – a response.” (Jersey L.R. 2007, 11(1), 20-27).

Access to the Jersey L.R. is for those with a subscription.
