"International Civil Litigation: Observations from the Front Lines of International Disputes"
Apartheid in South Africa? The 9/11 Terrorist attacks? Targeted assassinations of labor leaders? Guantanamo Bay detainees? Such issues are not simply being debated in the halls of Congress, the sessions of the United Nations or the Oval Office. Rather, these and many other issues are being heard, and in some cases, decided in federal courts throughout the United States. The study of international civil litigation explores the law - and the limits - of the role that the federal courts can (and should) play in these and other matters of national and international significance.
Peter "Bo" Rutledge is an American attorney, a professor of law at the University of Georgia School of Law, and an expert in international civil litigation in United States courts.
