Lex Loci

From lawbrain.com

[Latin, The law of the place.] The law of the state or the nation where the matter in litigation transpired.

The term lex loci can be employed in several descriptions, but, in general, it is used only for lex loci contractus (the law of the place where the contract was made), which is usually the law that governs the contract.
