Case managing strategic litigation and international forum shopping

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference abstract

Abstract

The high levels of cross border transactions in Australia, caused partly by its federated nature, make the intersection between domestic civil procedure and private international law significant. Australian courts, therefore, must be cautious of the precedent they create for cross border strategic litigators in making case management decisions on cross border cases. This paper considers the dangers of taking a purely domestic case management based approach to private international law disputes in light of the High Court’s recent decision in UBS AG v Tyne [2018] HCA 45.
