Party Autonomy in EU Private International Law

Choice of Court and Choice of Law in Family Matters and Succession

Book | 1st edition 2021 | World | Jacqueline Gray

'Gray's work is an extremely rewarding read to understand the structures and connections [in the choice of court and choice of law rules in family and succession matters].' -- Prof Dr Peter Mankowski, FamRZ, 2021.
This quote has been translated from German.

This book focuses on the concept of party autonomy in cross-border family matters and succession in EU private international law. It analyses the choice of court and choice of law provisions that has been developed within this framework over the past two decades. These rules are evaluated and compared in view of the underlying values and objectives in the EU context. Does the manifestation of these provisions meet the EU’s objectives in adopting legislative action? If not, what factors prevent them from doing so? Are there any gaps that need to be addressed and how might these issues be tackled?

Party Autonomy in EU Private International Law: Choice of Court and Choice of Law in Family Matters and Succession is valuable to researchers, legal practitioners and civil servants with an interest in private international law and/or cross-border family- and succession law issues.
