Abstract

The Spanish law, like the civil law systems, has a specialized system of courts. In such a system, every claim has to be decided for the judges identified by the law as authorities to render the decision. Such organization causes practical problems in the Spanish law of torts, because the same damage can be solved in different ways by judges of different jurisdictions. The paper deals with these problems, and tries to provide solutions to the most common conflicts among jurisdictions.
