講義概要

Reading Seminar on International Adjudicative Jurisdiction

Students are expected to make presentations for 15-20 minutes with a brief handout (or PPT?), including the short summary of the reading part and reflections on the issues dealt with. After the presentations, we will discuss them, sometimes referring to Japanese choice-of-law rules. 

到達目標

Choice of law is one of the three pillars of conflict of laws (private international law). Although choice-of-law rules are different from country to country, the basic framework is common in most countries, except the United States which experienced the so-called the choice-of-law revolution.

              The objective of this reading seminar is that participants will have a deep understanding about choice of law through reading chapters selected from three books recently published.
