Forum-shopping in Europe

Forum-shopping and the European Judicial System

Description of Forum-shopping provided by the European Union Commission: Forum-shopping is a specific concept of private international law. A person who takes the initiative of bringing a court action may be tempted to choose his court on the basis of the law applied there. A person starting an action might be tempted to choose a forum not because it is the most appropriate forum but because the conflict of laws rules that it applies will prompt the application of the law that he or she prefers.
