Christian Schulze, On Jurisdiction and the Recognition of Foreign Money Judgments

Christian Schulze, On Jurisdiction and the Recognition of Foreign Money Judgments Book Reviews – Critique Bibliographique On Jurisdiction and the Recognition of Foreign Money Judgments, Christian Schulze [Pretoria: University of South Africa Press, 2005] xxii + 333pp The law on the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments is constantly evolving. There is no dearth of writing on the subject in many jurisdictions. There has, however, never been any systematic and comparative treatment of the subject from the African perspective. As the level of international relationships with Africa, especially in the commercial context, increases with its concomitant disputes and settlement, this area of the law in Africa will begin to draw international attention.

Abstract

Book Reviews – Critique Bibliographique On Jurisdiction and the Recognition of Foreign Money Judgments, Christian Schulze [Pretoria: University of South Africa Press, 2005] xxii + 333pp The law on the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments is constantly evolving. There is no dearth of writing on the subject in many jurisdictions. There has, however, never been any systematic and comparative treatment of the subject from the African perspective. As the level of international relationships with Africa, especially in the commercial context, increases with its concomitant disputes and settlement, this area of the law in Africa will begin to draw international attention. It is against this background that this book by Professor Christian Schulze, the first of its kind in Africa, is both refreshing and welcomed. The book consists of eleven chapters. Chapters 1–2 deal with jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments in South Africa. The common law lawyer reading the chapters will notice the grounds for jurisdiction in South Africa go beyond that ordinarily existing under the common law. These grounds of domestic jurisdiction in South Africa will not necessarily be recognised as conferring international jurisdiction when it comes to the enforcement of foreign judgments.
