Domicile

The concept of domicile, as understood under English law, does not exist in German civil law. However, if German conflicts of law refers to English law (e.g. because the deceased was a British Citizen) this reference also includes English conflicts of law. If English law refers to German law because of the domicile of the decedent, Germany will accept the reference and German law will apply.
