Useable both as a student textbook and as a general introduction for legal professionals, European Private International Law is designed to reflect the reality of legal practice throughout the EU. Member States are increasingly regulated by the EU in this area of law, making private international law ever less 'national' and ever more statutorily based. Consequentially, EU law in this area has penetrated national law to a very high degree, making it an essential area of study for European law students and an area of increasing importance to practicing lawyers throughout the EU. 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). Additional chapters deal with current and cutting-edge developments in the areas of private international law and insolvency, information, communications and technology, corporate social responsibility, and intellectual property.

...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)
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, 'In Touch')
Excellent overview of European Private International Law issues, as well as a very helpful introduction to basic concepts of conflicts of laws and jurisdictions. (Professor Stavros Brekoulakis, Queen Mary University of London, UK)
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)
This book is essential reading for law students in Europe and abroad. It provides a coherent overview of all main elements of European private international law; concepts, legal instruments and practice. (Professor Kim Talus, UEF Law School, Finland)
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, Université 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)
