Many important developments have made it desirable to publish a new edition of International Litigation and Arbitration. As with past editions, a detailed Teacher's Manual is available and the materials will be kept up to date with annual supplements.
An updated introduction to Chapter 1 provides an overview of conflict of laws, personal jurisdiction, and issues arising from the U.S. division of adjudicatory competence between state and federal courts. Retained from the 5th edition is a problem appendix with which teachers can cover or review major portions of the book. The Teacher's Manual analyzes the problems.
As an example of the major developments since the book's 5th edition, five U.S. Supreme Court cases decided in 2010 are either principal cases or major note cases in the 6th edition, including a landmark opinion on the extraterritorial application of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934. The new edition contains many more important developments since the previous edition, including the 2008 amendment to the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act (making it easier to recover damages from state sponsors of terrorism), a revision of the Uniform Foreign-Country Money Judgments Recognition Act, and a revision of the UNCITRAL Model Law on International Commercial Arbitration.
