Examining jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in Europe, Civil Jurisdiction and Judgments in Europe: The Brussels I Regulation, the Lugano Convention, and the Hague Choice of Court Convention provides a practical explanation of how these three legal instruments interact to form a coherent system. Trevor Hartley identifies the legal principles that lie behind the individual provisions of the instruments and provides a systematic explanation of how the instruments operate, focusing on real-life litigation problems, and including extensive reference to the case-law of the CJEU.
The pace of development is rapid in the field of civil jurisdiction. Since the book was first published in 2017, the UK has withdrawn from the EU and the CJEU has handed down judgments that have changed how the different policies and principles are interpreted together. In this new edition, Hartley continues to examine the extensive case-law of the CJEU and considers the wider applicability of the principles that the Court has articulated. He also illustrates how the Hague Choice of Court Convention will continue to apply in the UK as a means of upholding exclusive choice-of-court clauses between the EU and the UK.
The focus of this book is European and international, and explanation of how the three instruments harmonise remains relevant to practitioners and academics based on the Continent and in the UK.
