Course Content (Syllabus)
International and European Procedural Law is the field of law that governs legal problems connected mainly to a foreign counrty. The course concerns primarily the three following principal questions: which country has jurisdiction, whose law shall apply (rules concerning the conflict of laws), and, finally, whether a judgment rendered in one country can be recognized and enforced in another. The course is based on both national law and links with public international law, especially when private international procedural rules are based on international conventions or directly applicable EU regulations (e.g. Regulation of the European Parliament and the Council No 44/2001, 1215/2012). International collaboration in certain legal areas has generated conventions embracing uniform law rules or Regulations, such as the Regulation on the service in the Member States of judicial and extrajudicial documents in civil or commercial matters. Some of these conventions have become globally binding, whereas others are intended to apply to particular regions, e.g. the Nordic countries or the EU).
