The book is a collection of the presentations, made at a conference, organized by the Society on the problems of party autonomy in private international law, which was held at St. Kliment Ohridski Sofi University, Sofia, Bulgaria in May 2007. The topics discussed at the conference and collected in the Yearbook particularly address party autonomy issues in torts cases, succession, copyright infringement cases, consumer contracts, bills of exchange and contracts for international carriage by air.
The conference was opened by Professor Nikolay Natov, a leading Bulgarian academic in the field of private international law. We are grateful to him for also writing the introductory part to the Yearbook. Another prominent Bulgarian academic in the field, Professor Yordanka Zidarova, who was among the guests at the conference, contributed to the Yearbook with a comprehensive presentation on the principles of party autonomy.
We hope that our readers will enjoy the ideas shared in our Yearbook.
