About European Private International Law

As one of the most definitive texts on the market, European Private International Law provides an essential guide for both students and practitioners to the complex field of international litigation within the EU. The private international law of the Member States is increasingly regulated by European law, making private international law ever less 'national' and ever more EU based. Consequentially EU law in this area has penetrated national law to a very high degree, making it an essential area of study and an area of increasing importance to practising lawyers. This book provides a thorough overview of core European private international law, including the Brussels I, Rome I and Rome II Regulations (jurisdiction, applicable law for contracts and tort), while additional chapters deal with the recently adopted Succession Regulation, private international law and insolvency, freedom of establishment, and the impact of PIL on corporate social responsibility.

...provides...easy access to this fast evolving field of law and introduces the reader to its most important parts.
” –  German-British Chamber of Industry and Commerce Website

“Review of the First Edition: As a result of his broad knowledge on the subject and rich professional experience, Mr. Van Calster provides great insight into current issues within international law. The book is practical as both a student textbook and a general introduction for legal professionals. It is divided into seven chapters, all aspects of which are crucial for proper understanding of the subject…We advise both students and professionals to take a closer look at this publication as it offers the reader all the vital elements and structure of PIL and its development.” –  Vladimir Cupryszak, Association for International Arbitration Newsletter

“This is a most useful book. I recommend it to my students as a great way to come to terms with the EU elements of Private International Law.” –  Dr David Kenny, Trinity College Dublin,

“It is a good textbook, with European Literature, a necessity if one truly wants to understand European Private International Law and something which is lacking elsewhere (national literature in most cases). I will use it as sole recommended text on the Full time and Distance Learning Commercial Law LLMs (International Dispute Resolution course).” –  Emmanuel Guinchard, Senior Lecturer, Northumbria University, UK,

“Well-written, clear and understandable. Excellent value for money.” –  Dr Jan Oster, King's College London, UK,

“I will recommend the book as a very good introduction to those students who come - as Erasmus students - from abroad and those German students who will study abroad. For others it will be only a supplementary reading. The book has the advantage to be up to date while many German texts on private international law are waiting for a new edition.” –  Professor Dr Erik Jayme, Universitat Heidelberg, Germany,

“Interesting and authoritative.” –  Professor Theodore Georgopoulos, University de Reims, France,

“Very good coverage of some aspects which are relevant to the trade law course and its conflicts seminars.” –  Dr Simone Lamont-Black, University of Edinburgh,

The book will be of particular interest to academics, practitioners and undergraduate students.” –  Dr Michael Wells-Greco, Maastricht University, Maastricht European Private Law Institute website

“The second edition of the famous textbook by Professor Van Calster […], a work unique in its genre (in English), unlocks the fundamentals of the subject. (Translated from the original French)” –  Jean-Sylvestre Bergé, Université Jean Moulin (Lyon III), Revue trimestrielle de droit européen
