English Book on the Rome I Regulation


Will the new Rome I Regulation meet its goals

  • to improve the predictability of the outcome of litigation?
  • to bring certainty as to the law applicable and the free movement of judgments?
  • to designate the same national law irrespective of the country of the court in which an action is brought?

Edited by Prof. S. Leible (University of Bayreuth) and F. Ferrari (University of Verona), the joint-first English book on the Rome I Regulation is conceived to address these issues. To do so it collects the papers submitted to the conference “The Rome I Regulation”, held in Verona on March 2009 (see post by Martin George), where the most important features of the Rome Regulation (party autonomy; contracts concerning intellectual property rights; contracts of carriage; consumer contracts; employment contracts; set off; mandatory rules; public policy…) were outlined and discussed by distinguished legal experts all over Europe and beyond.
