"Legal Problems of New Zealand-Japanese Trade"

P Davis, 1969

This article is in two parts: the first provides a general outline of the Japanese legal system and the second part addresses the preliminary question of choice of law in contract before proceeding to particular aspects of a contract in New Zealand and Japanese law. In regard to party autonomy, New Zealand and Japanese law adopt a similar approach, but there is significant uncertainty and possible disparity in relation to the designation of the applicable law in the absence of an express choice of law by the parties.
