Private International Law in Common Law Canada: Cases, Text and Materials, 4th Edition examines the three key issues in civil litigation: taking jurisdiction over a dispute, recognizing and enforcing judgment of a foreign court, and identifying the law to be applied in resolving a dispute.

The fourth edition also investigates the historical and theoretical underpinnings of private international law, exploring its constitutional implications and its intersections with public policy. The three key issues are explored in the areas of torts, contracts, and unjust enrichment, as well as in property law and succession, and family law.

This current and comprehensive casebook is created by a team of well-respected and prominent Canadian scholars, and continues to be the only casebook of its kind to examine all traditional conflict-of-law issues.

  • Updated analysis of constitutional principles and the assumption of jurisdiction, most notably to address the Supreme Court of Canada’s decision in Club Resorts Ltd. v. Van Breda (2012)
  • Extracts from the Supreme Court of Canada’s decisions in Chevron Corp v. Yaiguaje (2015) on jurisdiction in recognition and enforcement proceedings and Momentous.ca Corp v. Canadian American Association of Baseball Ltd. (2012) on jurisdiction agreements
  • New extracts exploring traditional concepts, such as Foote v. Foote Estate (2011) on the law of domicile, and illustrating challenges posed by the Internet, as seen in Court v. Debaie (2012) and Douez v. Facebook Inc. (2015)
  • Expanded treatment of the Court Jurisdiction and Proceedings Transfer Act
  • Coverage of leading recent developments in cross-border family law concerning same-sex marriages and divorces, polygamous marriages, and surrogacy
  • Detailed, comprehensive, updated references to the leading jurisprudence, legislation and scholarship, and many new notes on the most recent developments and relevant comparative law from other legal systems such as Quebec, the European Union, and the United States
