Course Outline: This course covers important subjects that a lawyer will confront in many types of domestic and international law practice. The course will deal with the rules applicable under domestic and international law governing the following subjects: choice of applicable law; jurisdiction to adjudicate (judicial jurisdiction); prescriptive jurisdiction (jurisdiction to legislate); enforcement of foreign judgments; and related topics. The course will deal with both domestic conflicts (state-to-state, state-federal), as well as international conflicts, and will deal with principles established according to case law, statutory law, constitutional law, and international law. While concentrating on case law and litigation, the course is useful for those who intend to pursue a career in litigation, as well as those who wish to pursue a sophisticated international business law practice. The grade in the course will be determined by performance on a final exam, primarily involving essay questions in a traditional law school format.
