Abstract

Several recent Texas choice of law cases have misapplied the most-significant-relationship test, the basic Texas choice of law test adopted from the Restatement (Second) of Conflict of Laws. This outline offers a simplified but accurate structure for choice of law analysis. The result is a relatively simple outline of a complex subject. This outline will enable Texas judges to make most choice of law decisions quickly and accurately. Although the outline is focused on the court’s analysis, it will no doubt provide insight for advocates.
