Conflict of Laws (LLB341)

Organisational Unit Law and Criminology
Credit Points 3
Description Explores the effect of jurisdiction, choice of law and the enforcement and recognition of judgements in cases where the dispute crosses legal systems. This may occur in Australia in interstate disputes and in cases where one party is foreign. In essence this unit is concerned with resolving conflicts that arise because of the interaction between two different legal systems. As these rules vary between different legal systems, this knowledge is essential for lawyers operating in a globalised world.

1. Describe and explain the key principles governing the conflict of laws;
2. To apply these laws in particular factual situations;
3. Evaluate the impact of conflict of laws in respect of contract law;
4. Solve practical legal problems; and
5. Use legal research skills.
