Conflict of Laws

Law 232






This course examines how courts choose which law should be applied to transactions, relationships, or occurrences having contacts with more than one state. The course will also touch on topics such as personal jurisdiction, the recognition of foreign judgments, choice-of-law clauses, forum selection clauses, and the extraterritorial application of U.S. law. It will address the various approaches adopted by states and/or advocated by scholars, focusing on cases involving torts, contracts, property, and family law.
