This article considers the effectiveness of a choice of forum in a contract for the carriage of goods by sea under the rules of Council Regulation (EC) No 44/2001 on jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters (“Brussels I”) and the revisions to Brussels I proposed by the European Commission. Whether a choice of a forum can be invalidated by a maritime Convention such as those containing the Hague, Hague-Visby, Hamburg and Rotterdam Rules, or national legislation similar to one of those Conventions, is explored in the light of the express provisions on choice of jurisdiction, international Conventions and public policy in Brussels I.
