The leading case on choice of law in tort in Australia is now the decision of the High Court of Australia in John Pfeiffer Pty Ltd v Rogerson, which has significantly changed the law, certainly for the better. It is the purpose of this article to place that decision in the context of private international law at large and to extrapolate generally from it. It is suggested that the decision has important implications for the area at large and gives rise to some major issues of global interest and importance.
