Repository HCCH 2019 Judgments Convention: Special Edition


This is a special moment for us after a long way, and forgive us for highlighting it in a special edition of our Repository: Our book on the HCCH 2019 Judgments Convention that we have worked on over the last years has come out! Big thanks to all involved, including Hart Publishing who made this possible.

The HCCH 2019 Judgments Convention

Cornerstones, Prospects, Outlook


As kindly highlighted in the Series Editor’s Preface, the book is enriched by the diverse perspectives not only of distinguished legal scholars from around the world, but also experienced practitioners from the HCCH, UNCITRAL and the EU who are familiar with the intricacies of negotiating within the HCCH framework. Furthermore, the volume does not limit itself to examining the legal cornerstones of the convention (Part I) but also strives to illuminate its prospects in leading regions of the world (Part II) and, finally, ventures – based on the insights gained from the judgments project’s genesis – an outlook on future developments (Part III). Hence, the book provides a truly global appraisal of the HCCH 2019 Judgments Convention and is therefore likely to become a major point of reference for legislators, judges, legal scholars and lawyers in the field of Private International Law.

We are happy to announce that the volume will be available at special rates to the conference participants in Bonn on 9 and 10 June 2023. If you are interested in discussing the latest advancements in global judicial cooperation with our learned authors, please be invited to register with sekretariat.weller(at) We will be able to handle last minute registrations …
