Jurisdiction & Judgments

Conflict of Laws addresses issues that may arise when a dispute has connections with more than one state or country. The subject is generally divided into three interrelated parts: (1) territorial jurisdiction (and related doctrines), (2) choice of law, and (3) recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments. This short course, Jurisdiction and Judgments, focuses on territorial jurisdiction, forum non conveniens, forum selection clauses, and the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments. A short course that focuses on choice of law will be offered in the spring of 2015. If you have time to take only one course in Conflict of Laws, please enroll in the short course on choice of law.
