Civil Law Approaches to Conflict of Law
Last Updated Date:   12 November 2021

5 Credits,  Semester 2

Course Description:
Recent decades have witnessed a growth in commercial dealings between EU Member States and South East Asian countries, specially Singapore. Consequently, it is not uncommon for Singaporean individuals or businesses to become involved in commercial disputes with EU-based entities. This elective examines how the ensuing conflict-of-laws questions in these cases are resolved by courts in the EU (which, after Brexit, is dominated by civil law states). This elective would be particularly beneficial to those who are likely to be engaged by clients in Singapore or South East Asia who become involved in litigation before EU Member State courts.
