Just in case you have not already ordered your copy, or one for your library, the 5th edn (2009) of Briggs & Rees, Civil Jurisdiction and Judgments is available. Insofar as there is blurb available, here it is:
The new edition has been thoroughly updated to include:
- Major decisions of the European Court on the Brussels I Regulation, especially in relation to injunctions and arbitration, but also arising in almost every other area of civil jurisdiction and judgments
- The re-worked provisions for service out of the jurisdiction
- Countless new cases from the English courts
- Damages claims for breach of agreements of jurisdiction and choice of law
That doesn’t really do justice to the work, or the work put into its revision (it last appeared in 2005, so some of the changes are very significant). It isn’t cheap, though: £395 from either Informa or Amazon. But delve deeply, for this is worth every penny.
