Private international law
The Ministry of Justice is responsible for policy on private international law.
Private international law describes a country’s legal rules that address questions that arise when a transaction, dispute or a family relationship has a connection with two or more countries.These questions might include:
- Whether a court in a particular country can hear the dispute?
- Which country's law will be applied to decide the dispute
- Whether a judgment given by a court in one country can be enforced in another?
