Private international law
Private international law governs situations where the courts or legal systems of more than one country apply and where a conflict arises regarding which country’s rules should take precedence. It is particularly important in such cases to know which country’s laws will apply, e.g. in connection with a divorce or death. The validity of agreements in other countries and the way in which rulings can be enforced in other countries are issues that come under private international law.
