    I understand that the draft Rome IV Regulation on the effects of marriage and registered partnerships on property rights, will be published on 16 March 2011. Nicely timed for this conference.

    However, I’m not sure that the name Rome IV will be used for matrimonial property regimes (and registered partnerships). I recall that back in the beginning of the new millenium we used ‘Rome IV’ to signify Succession & Wills but the name seems too narrow and restricted to choice of law.

    I always thought that the Succession (& Wills if now to be added back in again) Regulation might be called Brussels IV. The Regulation on matrimonial property regimes was to be called Brussels III, but Rome IV now seems to be favoured post Rome III.
    Perhaps it is time for some other European cities to get a look in.
