Foreign submission has been recognised as a basis of international competence since the turn of the twentieth century. Nonetheless, its meaning and the reason why the act of submission can bind a judgment debtor to a foreign judgment in England remain obscure. This thesis gives a detailed account of the historical origins of foreign submission, drawing out its conceptual and theoretical ambiguities. The consent-based analysis of the concept, which has gained traction in recent years, is criticised as creating an imbalance between the claimant and defendant when enforcement is sought. A new perspective, based upon the legitimate expectations of the litigants, is offered. Within this framework, the procedural law of the court of origin will play a crucial role, assisting in drawing the line between when the conduct of a litigant should and should not amount to foreign submission for the purpose of judgment enforcement.
