Zachary D. Clopton : Courses and Seminars
International Litigation in U.S. Courts
This seminar will explore international issues that arise in civil litigation in U.S. courts. We will consider the various procedural issues that arise when courts are presented with foreign parties, foreign conduct, foreign evidence, and foreign states, and the various international and domestic legal sources that govern how U.S. courts must deal with these ever-increasing complexities in civil litigation. Topics will include subject-matter and personal jurisdiction, forum and venue, choice of law, foreign judgments, and foreign states. Grading will be based on a final examination, a presentation and short paper, and class participation.
