Commentators and courts disagree on such fundamental issues as the definition of forum shopping and whether it is an ‘unsung virtue’ or an untrammelled vice. Disagreements persist on how to deal with ‘virtuous’ forum shopping or how best to proscribe “evil” forum shopping, if such a distinction can at all be made. This research review illuminates, explores and contest these questions. The text identifies articles that analyse the definitions and purpose of forum shopping, the right and duty to practise it and how it relates to private international law. Other topics covered include the link between forum shopping and uniform substantive law and jurisdictional issues and arbitration. This research review provides a comprehensive overview of the topic and will prove useful to academics, students and practitioners alike.
