The current thesis seeks to evaluate the tort choice of law rules of the United Arab Emirates, by comparing these rules with the relevant rules adopted in the' United Kingdom and under the Rome IT Regulation on the Law Applicable to Non- Contractual Obligations at the European harmonisation level. The aim is to create a draft Bill, designed to reform the tort choice of law rules in the United Arab Emirates, by combining the most meritorious features of the three studied jurisdictions. Such a Bill is included in the final chapter of the thesis. A main concern of the thesis has been to address the latest developments, especially with regard to Rome II Regulation, which, during this study, has witnessed many amendments prior to the adoption of the final text. As well as the final text, its' earlier versions and proposals are referred to in'the thesis where necessary. To facilitate understanding, the thesis is accompanied by an appendix containing an English translation of the Introductory Chapter of the Civil Transactions Act of the United Arab Emirates, which includes the provisions containing the existing rules which are discussed in the thesis. The relevant provisions contained in the 1995 Act of the United Kingdom, and those of the Rome II Regulation, are also provided in appendixes. In the same vein, to make things easier and more valuable for the ' legislative authority in the United Arab Emirates, another appendix contains an Arabic translation of the draft Bill, designed to suggest amendments to the current tort choice of law rules in the United Arab Emirates. Finally I should add that for the sake of simplicity the footnotes are numbered separately for each chapter.
