This paper looks at how maritime torts and aerial torts play a slightly different role in the choice of law rules, when compared to other types of torts committed. This is mainly due to the nature of the tort and the extent of how far international law has slowly developed in relation to such issues as to maritime and aerial torts.

From the Paper:

"The fundamental question that the forum court must determine is when the elements of a tort cross jurisdictional boundaries, whether or not the tort has occurred within its jurisdiction. In essence the first requirement for any court, invited to exercise jurisdiction and power over parties, is to establish (at least where there is a contest or doubt) that according to its own law it has jurisdiction and power over the matter before it. If not, it must decide what law or laws to apply in determining liability."
