Foreign Law in Domestic Courts
An increasing feature of commercial trials in jurisdictions such as London and Singapore is the application of one or more systems of foreign law to issues which arise for determination. This lecture considers how the content of foreign law is established, and the circumstances in which the law of the forum can be applied in default. It reviews and evaluates the various alternative approaches to establishing foreign law – expert evidence, obtaining reports or decisions from the foreign court, the use of a special referee, or the determination of foreign law on the basis of submission rather than evidence. The lecture considers the innovative procedures adopted in the Singapore International Commercial Court for trying cases in which there is a foreign law element, and looks ahead to some potential developments which may follow from the SICC approach.
