Author: by R Lea Brilmayer
Written by leading Conflict of Laws scholars, Conflict of Laws: Cases and Materials, Eighth Edition, presents a balanced study of Conflict of Laws, otherwise known as Private International Law. The book begins with a discussion of traditional approaches to choice-of-law problems, both inter-state and international, followed by an examination of how modern courts and commentators have struggled to formulate new and better approaches.
The remaining broad topics-constitutional limitations on choice of law, personal jurisdiction, conflicts in the federal system, recognition and enforcement of judgments, extraterritorial application of federal law, choice of legal regimes, and choice of law in complex litigation-are considered in light of the wisdom derived from consideration of the basic choice-of-law problems.

7. The Choice of Law Contract (Studies in Private International Law)
Author: by Maria Hook
This book offers a contractual framework for the regulation of party autonomy in choice of law. The party autonomy rule is the cornerstone of any modern system of choice of law; embodying as it does the freedom enjoyed by parties to a cross-border legal relationship to agree on the law applicable to it.
However, as this study shows, the rule has a major shortcoming because it fails to give due regard to the contractual function of the choice of law agreement. The study examines the existing law on choice of law agreements, by reference to the law of both common and civil law jurisdictions and international instruments.
Moreover, it suggests a new coherent approach to party autonomy that integrates both the law of contract and choice of law. This important new study should be read with interest by private international law scholars.

On Labor Day 2007, a forest fire broke out in California’s eastern Sierra Nevada and eventually burned about 65,000 acres. Investigators from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection and the United States Forest Service took a mere two days to conclude that the liable party was the successful forest-products company Sierra Pacific Industries (SPI), founded as a tiny sawmill nearly sixty years earlier by Red Emmerson.
The investigative report on the fire declared that SPI’s independent logging contractor had started the conflagration by driving a bulldozer over a rock, creating a spark that flew into a pile of brush. No fire had ever been proven to start that way, but based on the report the U.S.
