Conflict of Laws or Private International Law, as it is also widely known, deals with the analysis and resolution of legal problems involving more than one jurisdiction. Using cases primarily from tort, contract, property, and family law, the student learns how to characterize a legal issue, how to determine which jurisdiction is the most appropriate forum and which jurisdiction's law governs the issue, and how to evaluate the significance of factors that influence the recognition and enforcement of the foreign judgment.
