The American Society of International Law (ASIL) gives us a broad definition of the term “Private international law” in its “Guide to Electronic Resources for International Law”:

“Private international law is the body of conventions, model laws, national laws, legal guides, and other documents and instruments that regulate private relationships across national borders.”

Stated in plain language, it tells us that this is a body of international agreements, treaties and national laws by which a set of rules has been established in order to balance national sovereignty and obligations undertaken by national sovereignty by adopting and ratifying international conventions, treaties and agreements. The rules have to do with three major areas: jurisdiction (or where the case is going to be decided), choice of law (or which national laws will be used in deciding the case) and recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments (or whether and/or how the judgment will be enforced in the country where enforcement is sought).

Foreign element comes in different ways and shapes. For example, parties to the contract come from different countries or marriage between individuals with different national citizenship. In such circumstances, a variety of legal issues concerning different national and international rules regarding procedural and substantive law arise. Based on these legal issues a dispute is resolved.
