International Dispute Resolution

Fundamentals, Controversies, and Recent Developments

$60 for MBA members | $95 non-members 

Disputes that have an international component can present a number of complications not encountered in conventional domestic litigation. The presenters - Chris Helmer, of Miller Nash LLP, and Professor George Foster, of Lewis & Clark Law School - will provide an overview of some of the most salient of these issues, paying special attention to points of controversy and recent developments. Among the issues they will explore are personal jurisdiction over foreign defendants; service of process abroad; foreign sovereign immunity; forum non conveniens; the international abstention doctrine; anti-suit injunctions; discovery in international cases; the Alien Tort Statute; and the enforcement of arbitration agreements and awards.
