Conflict of Laws (21358). 2 units. Choice of law and judgments enforcement in the American federal system. This course has some overlap with civil procedure -- students will mostly already have at least a basic familiarity with the law of judgments, personal jurisdiction, and the Erie Railroad doctrine. But the heart of the course is common law, statutory law, and constitutional law relating to extraterritorial application of state and federal substantive rules, primarily in the interstate (rather than international) context. The assigned course book will be Brilmayer, Goldsmith, and O'Hara-O'Connor, Conflict of Laws: Cases and Materials (Aspen Publishing, 7th edition, 2015).Students may arrange to write a paper instead of the examination, including papers for Supervised Analytic Writing or Substantial Paper credit. Self-scheduled examination or paper option. L. Brilmayer.
