This course focuses upon topics that have assumed increasing importance in federal court litigation practice during the past quarter of a century, but which do not receive sustained attention in the basic course in federal courts. Most importantly, the course will consider conflict of law problems, both at the domestic and international level, as well as recent developments in personal jurisdiction. The course will next consider preclusion issues, as well as the proper scope of anti-suit injunctions, once again both at the domestic and international level. Arbitration, both as a substitute for judicial process, and problems with respect to the enforcement of arbitration awards, both foreign and domestic, will be considered. Finally, if time permits, the course will end with a discussion of multi-party litigation. Enrollment limited. Materials to be announced.
