The Commonwealth Secretariat's Activities in the Field of Private International Law

In many areas of law, relevant both to private individuals and to commercial enterprises, there is a gradual diversification of legal rules within the Commonwealth. This is a natural result of the activity of different Member countries in progressively adapting their inherited common legal tradition to meet changing local circumstances. One result is that lawyers dealing with matters affecting two or more Commonwealth jurisdictions have greater needs in terms of legal information; another is that there is a growing importance for private international law (or the conflict of laws) in intra-Commonwealth legal affairs.
