The subject of Conflict of Laws engages the problem of multi-state litigation--that is litigation in which the parties may hail from or events occur in different states. Such litigation raises special questions, such as: what law is applicable?; where to file suit?; and how to enforce a judgment? As the country and the world grow more interconnected, these problems recur ever more frequently. As a result, this course covers three topics in depth: Choice of Law, Adjudicative Jurisdiction, and Recognition of Judgments. Emphasis is placed on theoretical and practical problems and traditional and modern approaches. While most of the material focuses on conflicts between states of the US, we will also engage with problems of international civil litigation and extraterritorial application of United States law. Ultimately, Conflicts is a challenging course best suited to students who intend to pursue a nationwide civil-litigation practice (indeed, it is essential for such students) or who are intrigued by complicated questions of legal theory, jurisprudence, and federalism.
