Transnational Commercial Litigation (M3125)

15 credits, Level 6

Autumn teaching

This module examines the rules governing commercial litigation in which not all facts are linked to a single jurisdiction. In those cases,
the following questions may arise:

  • In which jurisdiction can litigation between the parties take place?
  • The law of which jurisdiction governs the substantive issues of the dispute?
  • Can a judgment rendered in one jurisdiction be recognised and enforced in another jurisdiction?

This module addresses those questions. It focusses on the relevant EC/EU Regulations and English domestic law, but there is also
an opportunity to look at international conventions and the law in some other countries.
