When the outcome required by these authorities differs, which law governs? Beginning with the classic problem of choosing an applicable law in cases with facts touching more than one jurisdiction, this course is designed broadly to explore the variety of theories and systems used to resolve this question This course will cover the basic areas of conflicts but will place a special emphasis on the international elements of conflict of laws.
