Part of the Ius Comparatum - Global Studies in Comparative Law book series (GSCL, volume 26)


This chapter concerns the treatment of foreign law in Danish civil litigation. It first highlights some essential features of Danish civil litigation that are generally relevant for the application of (any) law and the pragmatic Danish understanding of the “nature” of foreign law. On this background, it analyses the principles for application and ascertainment of foreign law as well as the consequences of failure to establish relevant foreign law.
