The Ultimate International Law Guide for U.S. Judges–And Attorneys!

International Litigation Book Guide Judge attorneys miamiSeveral months ago I argued a case that centered on the finer points of forum non conveniens.

The issue comes-up regularly given the large number of international companies doing business here in Miami.

While my adversary and I had a firm grasp of the issues involved, the judge wanted to take some additional time to review the case law cited in our briefs before making a decision.

And that’s no surprise.

It can be difficult for a judge to keep up with all the nuances of international business litigation.

In the past year alone, there have been a number of major decisions that have reshaped forum non conveniens analysis.

I mention all this because the American Society for International Law recently released its Benchbook on International Law.

It’s a great resource for judges to quickly get up to speed on the fast-changing international law landscape.

While the benchbook was designed for district and state court judges, it’s also an excellent resource for:

Magistrate Judges who may handle discovery and similar matters in the first instance; federal appellate judges who review the work of the district courts; state court judges whose docket includes disputes for which there is concurrent federal-state jurisdiction; administrative law judges; law clerks, legal assistants, and staff attorneys who serve the judiciary; and litigants who seek clearly and accurately to present to judges pertinent issues of international law.

The international law benchbook is a great reference tool for anyone looking to keep up with international law issues in the United States.
