The scholars and courts who developed the methodologies of interest analysis for the resolution of choice-of-law problems have demonstrated a high level of responsibility in providing guidance to courts applying their theories. No one theory has proved suitable for all applications. The author argues that the search for a universally applicable formula is misguided, but that a penetrating factual analysis will more readily reveal the nature of the state interests at stake. He reflects primarily on the set of rules propounded by Professor Weintraub, but also discusses many of the alternative theories which have guided the development of the interest analysis approach so far.
