A quick attempt to answer your question: It is primarily a matter of common law, i.e, case law, though with some scattered statutes, and now a thick EU law overlay.  You very much need to consult a leading treatise such as Dicey/Morris/Collins on the Conflict of Laws.

Good afternoon,

Would someone be able to help me determine which law(s) in the UK govern the issue of conflict of laws under private international law? If possible, this afternoon (Eastern Standard Time) - thanks very much,
