Overview

The rules and practice for enforcing foreign judgments in England and Wales are complex, with various potentially applicable schemes. For example, enforcing a judgment from the USA and enforcing one from France involve wholly different considerations. This program will provide a comprehensive analysis of the modern law and practice for the enforcement of foreign judgments in England and Wales. It will explore the different enforcement schemes in operation depending upon the jurisdiction in which the judgment sought to be enforced was issued and the nature of the judgment sought to be enforced. The program will cover both substantive and procedural aspects of the subject in the context of practical litigation case studies.

Example areas covered during the program

  • Enforcing judgments under the common law regime–when will a foreign court be deemed to have the requisite jurisdiction?
  • Are foreign judgments subject to appeal enforceable in the UK?
