Subject outline

In this unit students examine the rules on international jurisdiction of national courts (including cyberspace jurisdiction), forum shopping, enforcement of foreign judgments, freezing orders, and other transnational litigation issues. European, UK/Commonwealth and US law all will be discussed in detail. Students will develop sound multi-jurisdictional understanding of private international law rules and the tactical and strategic concerns in international litigation, with the ability to advise clients with assets in multiple jurisdictions on their exposure to remote litigation. A full day will be devoted to a detailed introduction to international commercial arbitration and its reception in each of these countries.
