Conflict of Laws

This course deals with the legal problems that arise when an occurrence cuts across state or national boundaries. Major attention is devoted to the analysis of traditional rules and newly developing theories, especially as they apply in multi-state transactions and to out-of-state judgments. Consideration is also given to constitutional issues, the role of the federal courts and the relationship of jurisdiction of courts' concepts to choice of law problems.
