International Litigation & Arbitration

Students in this Short Course will examine the diversity of legal systems and concepts in transborder litigation. More broadly, they will examine choice-of-law and the enforcement of foreign judgments. Finally, students will examine the use of arbitration as a commercial remedy. At the end of the course, students will be able to better understand the unique challenges in the practice of international litigation and arbitration and, as a result, function more effectively in their role as advocates and third-party neutrals.
