Description

Jurisdiction and Judgments is a course in Conflict of Laws. Conflict of Laws addresses issues that may arise when a dispute or transaction has connections with more than one state or country. The subject is generally divided into three interrelated topics: (1) territorial jurisdiction (and related doctrines), (2) choice of law, and (3) recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments. This course focuses on the first and third topics: territorial jurisdiction, forum non conveniens, forum selection clauses, and the recognition and enforcement of judgments rendered by other states and countries. Choice of law is the focus of a separate course titled “Conflict of Laws,” and is covered in this course only to the extent necessary to fully understand other topics. At the end of the semester, students should have developed a sound understanding of the topics covered in this course, including policy considerations that may shape further development of the law.
