This book contains written presentations made during the PRIVATE LAW OF THE PHILIPPINES AND SPAIN INTERNATIONAL SCIENTIFIC CONGRESS held on 16 and 17 of April of 2015 at the University of Málaga, Spain.
The Congress has aimed to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research Philippine and Spanish scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results about different aspects of Private Law in both our legal bodies. It also has provided the premier interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary forum for researchers and practitioners to recover a bridge between the Spanish and Philippine Private Law that was broken forty years ago. Furthermore, we try to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted in the field of Private Law. In conclusion, the target of this Congress has been to examine research and development both in Philippine and Spanish Private Law and explore the future challenges both our legal systems have to face in the coming years.
