LAW 9593 - International Litigation in United States Court


Globalization has increased the importance of cross‑border litigation concerning a broad range of concerns, including business disputes, tort claims, human rights cases, and government regulatory actions. United States courts have developed a distinct approach to the resolution of such international disputes. This course focuses on the exceptional issues created by international litigation, including extraterritorial application of U.S. laws, service of process, discovery, enforcing foreign judgments, the act of state doctrine, foreign sovereign immunity, and the Alien Tort Statute.
