Explains the process by which foreign judgments can be registered in the UK, with reference to the provisions of the Administration of Justice Act 1920 and CPR Pt 74. Considers the factors which will prevent foreign judgments being enforceable within the UK as set out by case law, including the European Court of Justice in Owens Bank Ltd v Bracco (C-129/92), and with reference to academic texts. Notes the evidence which parties need to present when seeking to enforce a foreign judgment.
