Intl Conflict of Laws (LAW-622-001)
Meets 5/31/2012 - 7/26/2012
The goal of the course is to offer an introduction to what in some countries is called “Private international law” and is called conflict of laws in the US. This course is taught on a comparative basis and must be an “international” introduction to the discipline, meaning it prepares the student for work in several countries in handling cases of civil and of commercial law with foreign elements. The course describes problems that arise and approaches that are possible when a case shows links with more than one country whose laws may apply. The students will be taught to use the tools to resolve practical questions that most often arise in a range of problems in an international legal practise or in a business. The comparative nature of the course will force us to look at a plurality of national legal rules and to try and make abstractions from the particular rule; to describe and analyse tendencies or orientations.
