The Seminar will offer to students the opportunity to explore relevant doctrines in the resolution of conflicts that transcend national boundaries. It will examine jurisdictional rules and their application to specific substantive areas of law as well as the use of alternative dispute resolution mechanisms in International and Transnational laws. Among the issues that might be addressed are doctrines of jurisdiction (e.g. prescriptive, adjudicatory, territorial, national, effects and/or universal), and the enforcement of judgments and arbitral awards. In the process, students are invited to examine substantive rules and policies in such areas of law as Antitrust, Family, Securities, and International Human rights. Attention will be paid to the multiplicity of tribunals that operate in the field, including national and international courts, permanent and ad hoc arrangements. Familiarity with International Law is recommended, but not required. Interest in the jurisprudence of process is encouraged.
