This course is an introduction to cross-border litigation co-taught with the University of Sao Paulo.

This course will discuss Jurisdiction, Choice of Law, Common Law vs. Civil Law Jurisdictions, International Judgment Enforcement, Government Enforcement Defense, Asset Recovery and Protection (other than Judgment Enforcement), Insolvency and Restructuring, Arbitration, and the Law of Privilege.
