Book Launch: Landmark Cases in Private International Law

3 Verulam Buildings and Fountain Court invite you to celebrate the publication of ‘Landmark Cases in Private International Law’, edited by Louise Merrett of Fountain Court and William Day of 3 Verulam Buildings.

This collection of essays contains in-depth analyses of twenty two landmark cases in private international law, from Penn v Lord Baltimore in 1750 to Brownlie v FS Cairo (Nile Plaza) LLC in 2021. The focus is on landmark English judgments, but the collection also covers significant cases from Australia, Canada and Scotland. The book follows a conference held in Cambridge last year funded by Clifford Chance.

In the foreword, Lord Hamblen of the UK Supreme Court says: “A wide range of distinguished authors have contributed to this collection. Many have an academic background while others are serving judges, barristers and solicitors. Each author was allowed to choose his or her favoured landmark and the result is a wide tapestry.

Contributors include experts from academia from universities including Cambridge, Oxford, the London School of Economics, University College London, Western and Griffith; barristers from Fountain Court, 3 Verulam Buildings, Essex Court, Twenty Essex and 2 Temple Gardens; and judges from the Commercial Court and the Chancery Division.

The book can be purchased here.
