Lex loci actus

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

In the conflict of laws, lex loci actus is the law of the place where the act occurred that gave rise to the legal claim. This is often confused with lex loci delicti commissi which is where the tort is committed. While typically they both point to the same location, in the case of product liability, for example, the lex loci actus would be the place of manufacturing, while the lex loci delicti commissi would be the place of injury.
