Private International Law
Conflict of laws, also known as “private international law” in civil law jurisdictions, governs the legal relationships between individuals in an international context. It addresses the questions of which jurisdiction’s law should apply to a given case, and which jurisdiction may hear a legal dispute between private parties.
