The approach to classification in the South African private international law is discussed as a result of the perplexing decision in the <I>Laconian</I> case. This is done against the backdrop of the theoretical foundation of South African private international law, an analysis of the object of classification and the different approaches to classification in other legal systems. The double classification process followed in the <I>Laconian</I> case is rejected and an alternative approach is suggested.
