Conflict of Laws

A guide to researching Conflict of Laws


Journals and Periodicals

There are several excellent journals that focus on topics related to private international law. The following represent a selection of those available at CUA Law Library.

Journal Articles

In addition to the subject-specific journals listed above, there is excellent discussion to be found in a wide range of law reviews and journals. Relevant articles can be located in the full-text journal databases of Lexis and Westlaw, but searching legal periodical indexes can yield more accurate and inclusive results. We recommend these indexes in particular:

Indexes can be searched by author, title or keyword. For the most comprehensive results, try a subject search with some combination of the following subject terms:

  • conflict of laws--(name of country)
  • conflict of laws--(legal topic)
  • international commercial law

A useful bibliography of articles is compiled each year in the spring issue of the American Journal of Comparative Law. The most recent is S.C. Symonides, "Private International Law Bibliography 2021: U.S. and Foreign Sources in English," 70 Am. J. Comp. L. ____ (2022).
