Choice of law clauses — Applicable law — Limitations on jurisdiction — Recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments – traditional rules

This chapter discusses the limitations of the English courts' jurisdiction under the traditional rules. It first considers three types of limitations: limitations that affect the subject matter of the issue, limitations that affect the kind of relief sought, and limitations relating to persons between whom the issue is joined. It also explains limitations on jurisdiction imposed by certain statutes before addressing jurisdiction in respect of foreign property such as foreign immovables and intellectual property rights. Furthermore, it describes jurisdiction over the parties, focusing on persons who cannot invoke the jurisdiction and those who may claim exemption from the jurisdiction. The chapter concludes with an overview of statutory limitations on jurisdiction.
