Developments in the sphere of jurisdiction and the enforcement of foreign judgments in civil and commercial matters: Regulation 1215/2012 – The Brussels I Recast Regulation

Course Outline

Just as the Maltese legal community began to familiarise itself with the Brussels I Regulation – Regulation 44/2001, in December 2012 the European Union adopted the Brussels I Recast Regulation – Regulation 1215/2012. The new Regulation makes a number of amendments to the rules concerning jurisdiction and the rules regulating the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments in civil and commercial matters, with the ultimate objective of facilitating cross-border litigation and removing the remaining obstacles to the free movement of judgments.

The seminar will examine the amendments to Regulation 44/2001 and the manner in which the new Regulation will change the operation of the existing rules after its entry into force.
