As international relations evolve, whether through greater integration or through rethinking of the relationships between legal orders, so too do the rights and obligations of individuals and businesses evolve.  The Centre’s research contributes by responding to change, and by helping law and policy-makers to prepare for it.  As a research hub at the heart of the major actual and proposed developments of our time – from an ever closer European Union, to Scottish independence, to Brexit – the Centre for Private International Law endeavours to anticipate major legal issues, and to deploy expertise to identify questions, and to provide answers.

The Centre is led by Dr Jonathan Fitchen (Director) and Dr Katarina Trimmings (Associate Director).
