This article deals with the case law on the Rome III Regulation with a view to identifying the main issues related to its application. First of all, the article analyses the erga omnes effects of the Regulation, focusing on the public policy issues encountered in the case law. The article further examines the functioning of optio juris in practice and the reasons that justify the choice of the parties. The case law on objective criteria is then reported, with particular emphasis on the issue of the definition of “habitual residence” which is the key connecting factor. Finally, the article addresses the conflict-of-laws issues relating to the conversion of legal separation into divorce.
