Electronic commerce and international private law: A study of electronic consumer contracts by Lorna E Gillies

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article reviewResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Dr Lorna Gillies’ book, Electronic Commerce and International Private Law,
is a significant addition to the literature dealing with an area of law that deserves
much more attention than it has received so far. Private international law (or
international private law as Gillies prefers — I return to the terminology question
below) is a fascinating and complex area in its own right. However, when the
intricacies of modern communication are added, the area becomes even more
fascinating and indeed more complex. In her insightful book, Gillies focuses on
how private international law deals with electronic consumer contracts. In doing
so, her jurisdictional focus is placed on the laws of the United States and the
European Union (with particular emphasis on implementation in United
Kingdom law).
