Description The regulation of Czech private international law is embodied particularly in Act No. 97/1963 Coll., on international private law and procedure. In connection with the preparation of the new Civil Code, the need emerged to adopt a new Act on private international law. Although the amendment was not directly called for by EU law, we consider that the new draft Act on PIL provides, in a better and more systematic manner, also for those aspects that are directly or indirectly related to European law. The contribution explains the background of the new regulation and basic structure of the draft. It concentrates mainly on the these issues: procedural treatment of foreign law, overriding mandatory rules and classification.
