Private international law is the subject studied in this course. Private international law covers three main areas: national court jurisdiction to decide cases with foreign elements; recognition and enforcement of national courts decisions from other national jurisdictions; conflict of law, the system to choose what law is to govern the resolution of international issues in dispute. Every Nation has its own conflict of laws, and so Italy. Since 1999, the private international law of the EU Member States is increasingly regulated by the European Union, making private international law ever less 'national' and ever more EU based. The course is mainly focused on the EU system. A seminar on the Italian system (compulsory only for Italian students) is held in Italian.
