The World Law Dictionary Project

English may be the common language of the world, but the Common Law is not the common law of the world

That’s why, in a unique project, TransLegal has teamed up with leading law schools from around the world to create an online multilingual law dictionary linking the world’s legal languages to a single English law dictionary.

e.g. principle, consideration, jurisdiction

lex loci protectionis Latin phrase

Latin phrase meaning "the law of the place where the protection is claimed". It is a choice of law rule used in relation to intellectual property rights cases under which the applicable law is the law of the country where the legal protection for the intellectual property is claimed, not the law of the country where the intellectual property was created.
The lex loci protectionis is considered as a special rule for registered rights that takes the place of more general rules of private international law.
