Reflecting the authors' many years of diverse practice experience in international litigation and arbitration matters, the real world problems posed in this law school casebook will engage students and provide lasting knowledge through a ;see it, do it, know it; approach. Chapters address critical topics, including the role of the international lawyer, tips for international research and international resources, jurisdiction, service of process, obtaining the evidence, act of state, foreign sovereign immunity, and enforcement of judgments. An entire chapter is devoted to mediation and arbitration issues, including a stand-alone problem on mediation and arbitration planning and clause drafting. The second edition adds a problem on pretrial provisional relief and the lengthy problem on choice of foreign law and proof of foreign law has been divided into two problems. Attention is given to many significant developments such as the Hague Convention on Choice of Courts Agreement, the new Uniform Foreign Country Money-Judgments Recognition Act, the privatization of service of process in the United States under the Hague Convention, and recent U.S. and foreign judicial rulings.
