Written by two leading scholar-practitioners in the field, International Civil Litigation in United States Courts offers a unique combination of excerpts of cases and materials, commentary, and detailed notes—in an accessible framework that integrates topics seamlessly. Much like the newly released edition of Mr. Born’s International Arbitration casebook, this text promises to be the leader in its field.

The Fifth Edition provides a thoroughly updated survey of the field, canvassing recent developments, such as the stream-of-commerce theory of personal jurisdiction, the immunity of government officials after Samantar , and the extraterritorial application of federal statutes after Morrison . Each chapter contains non-U.S. materials which support a comparative study of the topics covered in the book.

International Civil Litigation in United States Courts features

  • broad and inclusive coverage
  • a manageable and transparent organization of topics
  • extraordinary authorship that brings a wealth of experience in teaching and practice to every page
  • integrated coverage of conflicts of laws
  • enduring value as a reference source
  • a detailed Teacher’s Manual
Updated throughout, highlights of the Fifth Edition reflect significant developments in the field:
  • analyzes the most recent Supreme Court decisions in the field like Samantar, Morrison and the upcoming stream of commerce cases
  • traces subsequent lower court activity following pathbreaking decisions like Sosa and Intel
  • covers major legislative activity like the recent overhaul of the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act
  • even greater emphasis on comparative analysis of the topics covered such as jurisdiction, judgments and forum selection
