This course analyzes civil suits that raise cross-border, international and foreign legal issues. Specific topics covered include transnational jurisdiction, forum selection, international choice of law, extraterritorial application of U.S. law, service of process and discovery of evidence abroad, the special treatment of foreign governments as parties, and the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments. The course focuses on how these topics are litigated in U.S. courts, but it also compares how similar issues are addressed in the European Union and Latin America.
