Saumier on Forum Non Conveniens in Quebec


Geneviève Saumier (McGill University) has posted Forum Non Conveniens in Quebec: Assessment of a Transplant on SSRN. The English abstract reads:

The doctrine of forum non conveniens was adopted in Quebec private international law with the new Civil Code of 1991 that came into force on 1 January 1994. After almost 20 years, how has this common law transplant adapted to its new environment? This article examines how the jurisdictional discretion was embraced and absorbed into Quebec legal and judicial practice and compares its particularities to those found in other jurisdictions.

The paper, which is written in French, was published in the Mélanges Prujiner (2011).
