The Equitable Jurisdiction to Enforce Foreign Judgments

By Dr Stephen Lee

There  are  a  variety  of  instances  when  courts  exercising  equitable  jurisdiction  have recognised    and    enforced    foreign    judgments.    But    when    those    instances    are   acknowledged  at  all,  they  have  tended  to  be  consigned  to  discrete  subject  areas  and not treated as examples of a wider genus.

In this article Dr Stephen Lee argues a new approach is required to keep apace  with the needs of an increasingly borderless society.
