The papers in this volume address the provisions of the 1999 Hague Jurisdiction and Judgments Draft Convention and the state of the negotiations as of the summer of 2000. They were presented at the symposium ""A Global Law of Jurisdiction and Judgments: Lessons from The Hague,"" held in July 2000 at the Centre Pantheon (University of Paris Law Faculty) as a part of the Cornell-Paris Summer Institute of International and Comparative Law.

Part I focuses on the jurisdiction provisions of the 1999 Draft Convention. For the most part, the papers in Part II look to the future, though they also deal briefly with the judgments provisions of the 1999 Draft. One paper takes up changes in European Union law that will significantly affect future negotiations concerning the Draft Convention. The other two offer analyses of the major hurdles blocking the way to a successful convention and proposals for vaulting those hurdles. At the beginning of each of the two Parts a brief commentary on the papers presented in each Part is also included.

This volume provides critical analyses of the Draft Convention and should appeal to any private international lawyer.
