New Uruguayan Private International Law Statute Passed

Two months ago I reported that the enactment of a new Uruguayan private international law statute was forthcoming after the bill had passed the Senate. Similar hope had been premature in the past, but this time it proved justified:On November 17, the bill was approved by the Cámara de Representantes. Opposition to the establishment of party autonomy managed to reduce its scope but not prevent the statute altogether. The debate is here, the text of the statute is here. Some more background information is in my earlier post.

Congratulations, Uruguay, and congratulations, world of private international law.
