Book description

This book provides an unprecedented analysis and appraisal of party autonomy in private international law - the power of private parties to enter into agreements as to the forum in which their disputes will be resolved or the law which governs their legal relationships. It includes a detailed exploration of the historical origins of party autonomy as well as its various theoretical justifications, and an in-depth comparative study of the rules governing party autonomy in the European Union, the United States, common law systems, and in international codifications. It examines both choice of forum and choice of law, including arbitration agreements and choice of non-state law, and both contractual and non-contractual legal relations. This analysis demonstrates that while an apparent consensus around the core principle of party autonomy has emerged, its coherence as a doctrine is open to question as there remains significant variation in practice across its various facets and between legal systems.

Reviews

'Alex Mills, of University College London, has undertaken a comprehensive analysis of party autonomy, the result of which is this stunning book, introducing an equilibrated approach to the theme, covering not only historical background and theoretical justifications of the principle but also a comparative study of the relevant rules of different jurisdictions. … the many magnificent features of this entirely faultless book enable the reviewer unhesitatingly to recommend it to academics and scholars who are seriously concerned with private international law, not disregarding its value also for practitioners engaged in the field. Postgraduate students could also highly benefit from this essential resource for their conflicts of laws module. No more needs to be said, apart from buying the book and giving it pride of place in your library.'
