Morris: The Conflict of Laws, now in its ninth edition, is one of the most widely used books on the subject, covering all aspects of private international law. Its extent and depth of information are unrivalled.

The work explains the subject's core ideas as well as how the law operates in practise. The authors stimulate critical thinking by asking readers to consider issues related to the conflict of laws as a whole, as well as its theoretical foundation and methods.

The ninth edition has been completely rewritten to reflect recent advancements in the discipline. The new edition includes the following features:-

  • jurisdiction has been broadened, with new material on practical issues in international litigation included.
  • a thorough examination of the Brussels I bis Regulation
  • inclusion of an increasing number of decisions on the interpretation of the Rome Regulations on choice of law in contractual and non-contractual responsibilities
  • material on the legal ramifications of same-sex marriage's implementation in England and elsewhere.
  • a re-evaluation of marriage property and the financial implications of divorce
  • An examination of how the English concept of habitual residency has evolved, particularly in the case of children.
