This course covers choice of law, jurisdiction, and recognition of judgments. It deals with cases that have connections with more than one jurisdiction, hence raising the problems of where to file suit; which law is applicable; and whether and how to enforce the judgment elsewhere. Emphasis is placed on the theoretical and practical problems of choice of law, and all the modern U.S. approaches are covered. Students who have taken similar courses can also receive credit for this course. Although most of the material focuses on conflicts between states of the United States, there is some coverage of the application of U.S. law in other countries. There is also a brief look at issues raised by the availability of cyberspace to transcend geographical boundaries. There will be an open book in-class final examination.
