The Group did not adopt the idea that the judge can use a partial choice of law as the basis for a presumption in favour of one law invoked to govern the contract in its entirety. It should be interpreted in the light of its purpose which is to protect the weaker party and in accordance with other international instruments with the same purpose such as the Judgments Convention.


In the other Member States of the Community, however, the body of rules of conflict on the law applicable to contractual obligations is founded only on customary rules or on rules originating in case law. Italian case law so holds and legal writers concur with this view In certain areas the parties’ freedom of choice is subject to limitations imposed by statute 20athe most important of these being in the field of exemption clauses 20b.

The purpose of this provision is to define the true aims of the uniform rules. This inference however is not conclusive and can be rebutted by any contrary inferences which may be drawn from the other provisions of the contract and the relevant surrounding circumstances 20e.
