CONFLICT OF LAWS

B. Lifshitz, "The rules governing conflict of laws between a Jew and a Gentile according to Maimonides", Mélanges à la mémoire de Marcel-Henri Prévost (Paris: Presses Universitaires de France, 1982), 179-189. - Noting that Jewish law leaves relatively little scope for (internal) conflict of law rules, the author considers contracts between parties whose customs differed, claims made by one party that the law of the state, rather than Jewish Law, should apply (as a result of dina demalkhuta dina), and litigation in Jewish courts between a Jew and a Gentile. The latter is studied with particular reference to the rulings of Maimonides. (B.S.J.)
