or second best: "ley de aplicación de acuerdos".
"El fuero competente para acuerdos será el de las leyes de la República de Madagascar, salvo que se acuerde (estipule, disponga) lo contrario."
Agreement can mean many more things (convenio, pacto, estipulación, contrato,...). I translated it as is. Good luck :)

El derecho aplicable al contrato/convenio/acuerdo serán las Leyes de la República de Madagascar, salvo pacto en contrario.

This would be the boilerplate terminology in a Mexican contract. I prefer contrato for Agreement, but it can also be a convenio or acuerdo, depending on the context.

Derecho Aplicable is the term used to refer to the set of laws that shall apply (e.g., the laws of the country under which the agreement will be construed).

Best of luck!
