Res Judicata, Estoppel and Foreign Judgments

The Preclusive Effects of Foreign Judgments in Private International Law

Peter R. Barnett

Oxford Private International Law Series

  • A clear and original work that makes sense of the complex and technical doctrines of res judicata and abuse of process, as applied to foreign judgments - an area of law that has been frequently confused and misapplied
  • An area of increasing importance for practitioners and academics - especially those interested in international commercial litigation
  • While focusing on the English law and Brussels and Lugano Conventions, it also includes useful references to res judicata case law in Australia and Canada
  • Detailed examinations of the Brussels and Lugano Conventions
  • Discussion of the proposed Hague Convention on Jurisdiction and Foreign Judgments in civil and commercial matters
