Lex fori

“Lex fori” is a legal term in Latin that means “law of the court” or “law of the forum.” It refers to the set of legal principles and rules that are applicable in a specific jurisdiction or forum where a legal conflict is being heard or tried. In simpler terms, it is the law that governs the place where a lawsuit is filed or where a court has jurisdiction.

The procedural and substantive rules that regulate the conduct of the lawsuit and the resolution of legal disputes in a particular legal system or jurisdiction are determined by Lex fori. It is crucial because it decides how a case will be handled and resolved within a specific legal system or jurisdiction.
