Description The national report for the purpose of the 20th International Congress of Comparative Law Fukuoka 2018 deals with the optional choice of court agreements from the perspective of the Czech law. The report answers the questions if the Czech national legislation allows the parties to conclude the optional choice of court agreements in international cases, what is the character of these clauses and if they are expressly stated in the Czech Private International Law Act. The authors deal also with the asymmetrical choice of court agreements, especially their legal effect. In the end of the report, the authors evaluate the efficiency of the national regulation and propose for the necessary modifications.
