New Book: Foreign Currency Claims in the Conflict of Laws
Hart Publishing has published the second title in its Studies in Private International Law series, Foreign Currency Claims in the Conflict of Laws by Professor Vaughan Black of the Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie University. More information is available here.
The web page for the book advises us that “This book takes a comparative look at how common law courts have addressed damages claims when foreign currencies are involved, and at statutory responses to that issue. It describes the practices of UK, Commonwealth and American courts in this field and draws both on principles of private international law and of damages assessment to analyse current practice.”
My congratulations to my Canadian colleague.
