LAW306  A  CONFLICT OF LAWS

Course Description
Legal rights and duties often depend on questions of choice of law, choice of forum, enforcement of foreign judgments, and related matters. Familiarity with appropriate analysis and responses is increasingly relevant to the successful practice of law in an interstate and international setting. This course examines constitutional structures, jurisdictional parameters, choice of law rules, and enforcement of judgment norms applicable in civil cases where operative facts in a case are connected with a state or country other than the one in which suit is brought, including the presence or absence of persons within or outside that state.
