Conflict of laws (or private international law ) is a set of procedural rules that determines which legal system and which jurisdiction apply to a given dispute. The rules typically apply when a legal dispute has a "foreign" element such as a contract agreed to by parties located in different countries, although the "foreign" element also exists in multi-jurisdictional countries such as the United Kingdom , the United States , Australia and Canada .

In civil law , lawyers and legal scholars refer to conflict of laws as private international law.

"It is somewhat easier for an offender to baffle the dictionary than the penal code, for the former is perplexed with verbal niceties and shades of meaning, while the later grasps in a broad, practical way at the substantial transactions of men." Oh, c'mon Justice Beckley of the Supreme Court of Georgia in Minors v Georgia (1879 Ga. 318) - stop spoiling all the fun! Ain't no-one gonna mess with dem dar legal words 'round dese here parts.
