ROME I and ROME II in Practice - Luxembourg perspective

The Rome I and II Regulations establish uniform conflict-of-laws rules. Providing clear and detailed insights into the national case law of most EU Member States, as well as the case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union, this book covers the applicable law to contractual and non-contractual obligations in the European Union as well as a practical analysis by practitioners from each EU jurisdiction.

First published in E. Guinchard, Rome I and Rome II in Practice, Intersentia, Cambridge 2020, this book is devoted to the applicable law to contractual and non-contractual obligations in the European Union. The Rome I and II Regulations provide uniform conflict-of-laws rules. In theory, all national courts of the EU Member States (excluding Denmark) apply the same rules determining the applicable law. Rome I and Rome II in Practice examines whether the theory has been put into practice and assesses the difficulties that may have arisen in the interpretation and application of these Regulations. Such a study is indispensable as the Rome I and II Regulations may be seen as a critical stepping stone towards the construction of a true and far-reaching European Private International Law.

Providing clear and detailed insights into the national case law of most EU Member States, as well as the case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union, and followed by a comparative analysis, this book is a valuable resource for practitioners, the judiciary and academics who are interested in understanding how EU law is applied on national and European levels.

As the contributor for Luxembourg, Emilia Fronczak exposes how Rome I and Rome II operate under Luxembourg law and provides a thorough analysis of key elements of their scope of application. You can find an extract from her contribution here, or order the full book here.
