Abstract :
[en] Law has different methods and principles to resolve conflicts between norms, most of these come from Roman Law, they are well-known and much discussed. There is a whole branch of law, though, which is much less discussed while having been created exactly in order to resolve special conflicts: conflict of laws. This system within Private International Law is dedicated to providing metarules in legal situations where more than one national legal systems’ rules could be applied: CoL rules indirectly settle the situation by declaring which one’s should. The formal representation of how these rules work contributes not only to the modelling of this branch of law but also provides methodologies for concerns arising from other conflicting normative systems, such as ethically sensitive situations where there are multiple stakeholders with different moral backgrounds.
