The law and practice of international civil litigation has continued to evolve significantly since the Sixth Edition of International Civil Litigation in United States Courts was published in 2018. The US Supreme Court and other American courts have issued new and important rulings on issues such as personal jurisdiction, foreign sovereign immunity, extraterritoriality, choice of law and recognition of foreign judgments. This new 2023 Edition has been updated to reflect these changes, and addresses important questions about the broader implications of those decisions as well as the critical role that other branches of government play in the field. International Civil Litigation in United States Courts (7th ed.) captures these trends, identifies emerging splits in authority, and critiques existing and developing doctrines.
