I often see governing law clauses that state something like
The contract is to be governed in accordance with the law of the State of California without regard to any conflict of law principles
I red this article but still don't see why it's necessary. The intent is clear. No one would put this in without intending to mean it.
The article says such clauses prevent against courts simply not following the choice of law, and also preventing "renvoi" but isn't that the same thing? I don't see how there are two different things the "without regard..." prevents.
