Abstract

This article is about choice of law. It is about making choices of law fit the policies of the underlying substantive law and about why that fit is important both to the choice of law and to the substantive law. The author critiques choice law approaches and also explores choice law in multiple settings. The author argues that courts must shape the law from policy using the analytical tools available in the whole of the law.

Keywords: Choice of law, substantive law policy, Hague v. Allstate Insurance Co
