The third edition of the highly regarded book, Private International Law in Australia, provides a clear and comprehensive analysis of the principles of private international law and the methods by which such principles are applied to cross-border legal problems throughout Australia.

Important recent developments in Australian private international law are discussed, together with legislative reforms and significant decisions, particularly of Australian courts. A new chapter on corporate insolvency has been added in this edition. 

The book provides an in-depth examination of the following subjects:

     •     introduction to private international law
     •     jurisdiction and judgments
     •     international arbitration
     •     choice of law
     •     international family law
