International Law of Procedure

Introduction

International Law of Procedure - Research Guide International Law

International (Civil) Procedural Law is part of Private International Law and covers the following main subjects. Firstly, the jurisdiction of national courts in international civil and commercial disputes, and jurisdictional immunities. Secondly, the recognition and enforcement of decisions of foreign courts. The 1968 Brussels Convention on Jurisdiction and Enforcement represents the beginning of a harmonization programme of procedural law within the European Union which has been one of the most striking developments in this field. Harmonization attempts at the international level by the International Institute for the Unification of Private Law (UNIDROIT)and the American Law Institute (ALI) resulted in the ALI/UNIDROIT Principles and Rules of Transnational Civil Procedure in 2004.

  • Hartley, T.C., Choice-of-Court Agreements under the European and International Instruments : the Revised Brussels I Regulation, the Lugano Convention, and the Hague Convention, Oxford, Oxford University Press, 2013.

    Hartley, T.C., Choice-of-Court Agreements under the European and International Instruments : the Revised Brussels I Regulation, the Lugano Convention, and the Hague Convention, Oxford, Oxford University Press, 2013.
    This is the first text to address all the instruments that will govern choice-of-court agreements in Europe and to engage in a practical discussion of their mutual relationship. The existing common law, which has dominated discussion of this subject for so long, will become less significant as European and international instruments become more widely applicable. The consequences of this, both for practitioners and business persons engaging in international transactions, are explained by thematic chapters covering all major issues affected.The work opens with an introduction to the components of a choice-of-court agreement and to the origins, principles, and status of the various instruments, making the text accessible to a broad practitioner audience. The scope of the instruments – territorial application, international application and subject-matter application – as well as conflicts between them, are addressed in Part II, which is devoted to guidance on deciding which instrument applies. Validity (substantive and formal), effects, remedies, and procedure are discussed in Part III, while Part IV tackles a range of more specialist areas, including insurance, consumer contracts, employment contracts, companies, and intellectual property. Comprehensive appendices follow, including the Hague Convention 2005 in its entirety, alongside extracts from Brussels I and Lugano, making this a standalone support for any practitioner facing unfamiliar questions in the area.

    Wolff, R.(ed.),The New York Convention Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards of 10 June 1958  Commentary, München, Beck,2012.

    In a world characterised on the one hand by globalised trade and commerce, and on the other by deteriorating judicial services, arbitration has become the dispute resolution mechanism of choice in cross-border commercial transactions. International arbitration not only paves the way for parties to avoid state courts, it also facilitates the transnational enforceability of awards that are far more effective than the enforceability of state court judgments. The major instrument is the Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards (New York Convention) of 10 June 1958, which entered into force one year after. Since then the New York Convention has been ratified by 144 states, including all the important trading nations. For good reason the New York Convention is labelled the Magna Carta of international arbitration. The courts of any contracting state are required “to give effect to an agreement to arbitrate when seized of an action in a matter covered by an arbitration agreement and also to recognize and enforce awards made in other States, subject to specific limited exceptions” (UNCITRAL).
    The 16 articles of the Convention are dealt with article-by-article, following a clear structure which swiftly guides the reader to the issue that he or she is engaged with. Given the New York Convention’s global relevance, it follows that potential users of the Convention are in need of guidance as to how to apply it. The primary readers of this book will be lawyers seeking (or defending against) recognition and enforcement of foreign arbitral awards worldwide, state court judges applying the Convention in recognition proceedings, and in-house lawyers in large and/or multinational enterprises dealing with transnational dispute resolution.

  • Payan, G., Droit Européen de l'Exécution en Matière Civile et Commerciale, Bruxelles , Bruylant, 2012.

    Payan, G., Droit Européen de l'Exécution en Matière Civile et Commerciale, Bruxelles , Bruylant, 2012

    Depuis une quinzaine d’années environ, la doctrine européenne et la Commission européenne soulignent l’opportunité d’une action de l’Union européenne dans le domaine de l’exécution proprement dite des titres exécutoires. Pourtant, ce domaine est encore aujourd’hui pour l’essentiel abandonné aux droits nationaux. Cette situation devrait évoluer prochainement.

    La présente étude a pour objet d’anticiper les premières réalisations concrètes de l’action du législateur européen dans ce domaine, en suggérant la création d’un droit européen de l’exécution en matière civile et commerciale. L’objectif est de garantir la cohérence entre les futurs instruments européens de l’exécution. À cette fin, une stratégie législative à deux échelons est proposée. Le premier échelon se caractérise par l’adoption d’une approche globale de la problématique de l’exécution proprement dite des titres exécutoires au sein de l’Union européenne. À ce stade, il est question de définir les principales notions juridiques s’attachant à l’exécution, de délimiter le champ d’application de l’action de l’Union européenne et de définir les principes directeurs de cette action. Le second échelon de la stratégie législative proposée se caractérise, en revanche, par une approche « sectorielle ». À ce stade, sont visés les premiers instruments européens qui pourraient être adoptés dans le cadre de ce droit. Par souci de réalisme, cette seconde étape de la création d’un droit européen de l’exécution devrait se matérialiser par une série d’interventions ponctuelles, adaptées aux difficultés et aux besoins rencontrés. Différents chantiers prioritaires sont définis, dont la création d’une procédure européenne de saisie conservatoire des avoirs bancaires.

    Kramer, X.E. and Rhee, C.H. van (eds.), Civil Litigation in a Globalising World, The Hague, T.M.C. Asser Press, 2012.

    This book is an important contribution to the discussion about globalisation of civil procedure. Globalisation of legal matters and the inherent necessity of having to litigate in foreign courts or to enforce judgments in other countries considerably complicate civil proceedings due to great differences in civil procedure. This may jeopardise access to ustice. As a result, the debate on the need for the harmonisation of civil procedure becomes ever more prominent.    This book discusses the globalisation and harmonisation of civil procedure from various angles, including fundamental (international) principles of civil justice, legal history, private international law, law and economics and (European) policy.

  • Junker, A., Internationales Zivilprozessrecht, München, Beck, 2012.

    Junker, A., Internationales Zivilprozessrecht, München, Beck, 2012.

    Zum Werk Der neue Grundriss lehrt knapp, prägnant und studienorientiert das internationale Zivilverfahrensrecht. Das internationale Zivilverfahrensrecht befasst sich mit den in Deutschland geltenden Regelungen für Zivilprozesse mit Auslandsberührung, für die Anerkennung und Vollstreckung ausländischer Entscheidungen und der internationalen Zuständigkeit deutscher Gerichte. Dieses Gericht gewinnt jüngst immer mehr Bedeutung in der universitären Ausbildung und verselbständigt sich gegenüber dem Internationalen Privatrecht. Ursächlich hierfür ist insbesondere die Harmonisierung der nationalen Rechtsordnungen durch europäisches Recht in diesem Bereich. Abbo Junker, Lehrstuhlinhaber in München und einer der führenden Internationalverfahrensrechtler in Deutschland, legt mit diesem Grundriss eine der wenigen lehrbuchartigen Darstellungen des Themas vor. Das Werk stellt den ausbildungsrelevanten Stoff komprimiert und eingängig dar, lässt aber auch die Bezüge zur Falllösung und zur Rechtspraxis nicht vermissen. Dadurch eignet sich das Buch nicht nur für Jurastudierende und Referendare, sondern auch für Praktiker, die sich in eine für sie neue Materie einarbeiten wollen. Inhalt – Grundlagen – Rechtsquellen – Erkenntnisverfahren – Ausländer als Verfahrensbeteiligte – Familiensachen – Einstweiliger Rechtsschutz – Anerkennung und Vollstreckung Vorteile auf einen Blick – zahlreiche Fälle – prägnante Darstellung – renommierter Autor Zielgruppe Für Studierende, Referendare und Praktiker.

    Weber, S.M., Das Internationale Zivilprozessrecht Erbrechtlicher Streitigkeiten, Sipplingen  Jenaer Wissenschaftliche Verlagsgesellschaft, 2012

    Streitige Erbverfahren mit internationalen Bezügen bereiten in prozessualer Hinsicht zwei besondere Schwierigkeiten: Zum einen müssen im Rahmen des deutschen Verfahrensrechts die Wertungen eines fremden materiellen Erbrechts angemessen umgesetzt werden, zum anderen kann die Bestimmung der richtigen Rechtsquelle problematisch sein.
    Sophie Maria Weber untersucht, wie diese Konflikte methodisch gelöst werden können und erörtert zahlreiche Einzelprobleme, wie die Berücksichtigung des fremden materiellen Erbrechts bei Bestimmung der Prozessführungsbefugnis von Testamentsvollstreckern oder der subjektiven Reichweite der Rechtskraft zwischen Erbe und Fremdverwalter.
    Die Autorin legt einen besonderen Schwerpunkt auf die Koordination von Verfahren aus dem Anwendungsbereich der Brüssel I-Verordnung mit spezifisch erbrechtlichen Verfahren. Letztere unterliegen ab dem Jahr 2015 der neuen Europäischen Erbrechtsverordnung, welche in dem Band besondere Berücksichtigung findet.
