SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ International litigation, sometimes called transnational litigation, is the practice of litigation in connection with disputes among businesses or individuals residing or based in different countries. The main difference between international litigation and domestic litigation is that, in the former, certain issues are more likely to be of significance — such as personal jurisdiction, service of process, evidence from abroad, and enforcement of judgments. Although there are differences among the jurisdictional statutes of many American states, they all are subject to the due process requirements imposed by the Constitution of the United States. As a result, most American lawyers who are familiar with general principles of jurisdiction in one or more states of the US are able to guide their clients through jurisdictional issues in connection with disputes among litigants from different states. The situation is different with respect to jurisdictional principles in the international context. The first difference concerns long-arm jurisdiction, which is the statutory grant of jurisdiction to local courts over out-of-state defendants. A long-arm statute authorizes a court in a state to exercise jurisdiction over an out-of-state defendant. Without a long-arm statute, the courts in a state might not have personal jurisdiction over an out-of-state defendant. A state's authorization to exercise jurisdiction is limited by the federal Constitution. The use of a long-arm statute is usually considered constitutional where the defendant has certain minimum contacts with the forum state and there has been reasonable notice of the action against that defendant. Second, many countries take the view that American concepts of long-arm jurisdiction are too broad, and courts of such countries will not recognize judgments from American courts based on the exercise of American long-arm jurisdiction. Looking at the issue from the non-American perspective, courts in some countries exercise jurisdiction based upon principles that American courts would consider unfair and repugnant to American law. For example, in some countries, such as England and Israel, a court may exercise jurisdiction over a defendant that is considered to be a "necessary or proper" party in a case against a local defendant. It is not clear that such a jurisdictional basis would be upheld by American courts when the non-US judgment-creditor seeks to enforce in the United States. In every lawsuit, the plaintiff must effect service of process upon the defendant(s). In the international context, the issue of service of process is more complex. In the United States, service of process is routinely carried out by private lawyers or their agents. In contrast, many other countries consider the activity of serving process in a judicial proceeding to be one appropriate only for the government or an arm of the government. As a result of differing approaches to the issue of service of process, several nations signed the Hague Service Convention (1965), under which each member nation is required to establish a Central Authority to receive, review, and execute requests from foreign courts for carrying out service of process. Most countries that are signatories to the Hague Service Convention will accept requests for service that are signed by the lawyer for the plaintiff (claimant). Two exceptions are the UK and Israel. .....

Transnational Commercial Law
BOOK REVIEW TRANSNATIONAL COMMERCIAL LAW International Instruments and Commentary 2nd Edition By Roy Goode, Herbert Kronke, Ewan McKendrick, and Jeffrey Wool ISBN: 978 0 19 958286 0 www.oup.com FOR PRACTITIONERS IN GLOBAL BUSINESS: A WELCOME 2nd EDITION OF 'TRANSNATIONAL COMMERCIAL LAW'. An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers Business is now global and so too, obviously, is commercial law, which, like the world of business itself, changes continuously. Commercial lawyers virtually everywhere will welcome this new second edition of 'Transnational Commercial Law' recently published by the Oxford University Press. The new edition incorporates and closely examines the numerous and diverse developments in transactional commercial law that have taken place since the publication of the first edition seven years ago. The work as a whole has undergone comprehensive revision to include numerous new international instruments and additional ratifications of existing conventions, so there is much new material. For example, in Chapter 2 the third edition of the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts published in 2011 replaces the second edition. In Chapter 3, the 2005 UN Convention on the Use of Electronic Communications in International Trade has been added. There's an overview of the convention on carriage of goods by sea, road and air in a new Chapter 5... and in Chapter 6, the new codified version of the First Company Directive which deals with agency and distribution, now appears. We could go on, but suffice to say that the list of incorporated new material is formidably lengthy; all the more reason why, if you are professionally involved in commercial law you need the expertise, the scholarship and above all, the authority provided by this book. The structure is logical. For example, introductory text is provided at the beginning of each of the thirteen chapters which cover an incredibly wide range of subject matter, including the various relevant aspects of contract law, from international sales and carriage of goods to agency and distribution... international credit transfers and bank payment undertakings... cross-border insolvency... conflict of laws... international civil procedure and of course, much more. Of particular relevance to just about everyone involved in international trading is the chapter which covers electronic commerce with its 'efficient alternatives to paper-based contracting' as the authors have put it. It seems that, predictably and understandably, the law carries on struggling to keep up with the relentless advance of internet technologies and facilities such as social networking. As the authors trenchantly admit, 'electronic commerce exposes the incompleteness of legal rules applicable with the geographic limits to which technology is impervious.' For practitioners with internet shopping clients, the introductory text here makes for enlightening reading, together with the list of key instruments (UNCITRAL 1996 and 2011), two EC directives and all four chapters on the United Nations Convention on the Use of Electronic Communications in International Contracts. In our view, this latest edition of this authoritative work, with its wealth of new material and detailed content, is an essential requirement for practitioners within this area of law, as well as those undertaking research. Extensive research resources abound, including copious and detailed footnoting, a lengthy index and extensive tables of cases and of statutes. The publication date is cited as at January 2012.

Recognition of Foreign Judgments in the United States (Webinar)
Every year, thousands of judgments from foreign courts are brought to U.S. federal and state courts for recognition and enforcement. Thanks to the sharply rising tide of transnational litigation, more and more U.S. and non-U.S. lawyers will face the challenges of successfully obtaining-or opposing-recognition in U.S. courts. Some of these challenges were recently highlighted in Chevron v. Donziger, a New York federal court case that invalidated a multi-billion dollar Ecuadorian judgment. Any lawyer seeking to obtain or oppose recognition in U.S. courts, will benefit from watching this video, which provides a detailed overview of the law of foreign judgment recognition, and addresses the practical considerations at play. Topics covered include: • The three legal frameworks for foreign judgment recognition • Threshold requirements for recognition • Reciprocity principles • Mandatory and discretionary grounds for non-recognition • Special First Amendment issues • Differences in substantive and procedural law among the states • Use of experts in seeking and opposing recognition • Default judgments • State v. federal courts • Recent decisions and trends

LAWSG094: Alternative Dispute Resolution // Dr John Sorabji
The module introduces students to the principles and practice of alternative dispute resolution. It examines the various processes that collectively constitute ADR, for instance, negotiation; mediation; arbitration; collaborative lawyering; early neutral evaluation; summary jury trial and minitrials. It explores the role played by Ombudsman and recent developments in Online Dispute Resolution (ODR). It does so by examining the nature of disputes, the history and theory of dispute resolution and the development of ADR since the 1970s. The module includes practical exercises in mediation to illustrate the nature and limitations of ADR and the skills of the mediator. It provides experience in the value and limitations of adopting a ‘problem-solving’ approach to disputes.

CLP Speaker Series - Beyond Benchmarking: How Should Law and Corporate Compliance Intersect?
Michele DeStefano Associate Professor of Law University of Miami School of Law Michele DeStefano was a Climenko Fellow and Lecturer on Law at Harvard Law School, where she was previously the Associate Research Director of the Program on the Legal Profession. Her primary area of scholarly interest is in the growing intersection between law and business, how this intersection is reshaping the role of both inside and outside counsel, and the consequences of these developments for clients, the profession, and the public. Employing a mix of qualitative and quantitative methodologies, Professor DeStefano's most recent published research investigates the role general counsels play in managing public relations for high profile corporate legal controversies. She is currently researching the changing role of compliance by conducting interviews of general counsels and chief compliance officers of large, publicly traded corporations. Professor DeStefano is spearheading LawWithoutWalls™ a collaborative, part-virtual, academic model that brings together students, faculty, practitioners, and entrepreneurs from around the world to explore innovation in legal education and practice. Students from Miami Law, Fordham Law, Harvard Law, New York Law School, Peking University School of Transnational Law, and University College London Faculty of Laws will be paired up to conduct investigative research on an assigned topic to identify a problem in legal education or practice. Then, over the course of the semester, the pair of students will develop a Project of Worth that will offer creative solutions to the identified issue. Class will be virtual and entail guest presentations by thought leaders and active learning sessions that focus on business and team skills, interview techniques, and idea generation. Students will also be paired up with an academic mentor and a practitioner mentor for a series of virtual conversations, and have access to an entrepreneur advisory board and a subject expert board. Professor DeStefano also teaches courses in professional responsibility, civil procedure, and business associations. For more information, visit http://www.law.harvard.edu/programs/plp/

What is GLOBAL ADMINISTRATIVE LAW? What does GLOBAL ADMINISTRATIVE LAW mean? GLOBAL ADMINISTRATIVE LAW meaning - GLOBAL ADMINISTRATIVE LAW definition - GLOBAL ADMINISTRATIVE LAW explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Global administrative law is an emerging field that is based upon a dual insight: that much of what is usually termed “global governance” can be accurately characterized as administrative action; and that increasingly such action is itself being regulated by administrative law-type principles, rules and mechanisms – in particular those relating to participation, transparency, accountability and review. GAL, then, refers to the structures, procedures and normative standards for regulatory decision-making including transparency, participation, and review, and the rule-governed mechanisms for implementing these standards, that are applicable to formal intergovernmental regulatory bodies; to informal intergovernmental regulatory networks; to regulatory decisions of national governments where these are part of or constrained by an international intergovernmental regime; and to hybrid public-private or private transnational bodies. The focus of this field is not the specific content of substantive rules, but rather the operation of existing or possible principles, procedural rules and reviewing and other mechanisms relating to accountability, transparency, participation, and assurance of legality in global governance. Today almost all human activity is subject to some form of global regulation. Goods and activities that are beyond the effective control of any one State are regulated at the global level. Global regulatory regimes cover a vast array of different subject-areas, including forest preservation, the control of fishing, water regulation, environmental protection, arms control, food safety and standardization, financial and accounting standards, internet governance, pharmaceuticals regulation, intellectual property protection, refugee protection, coffee and cocoa standards, labour standards, antitrust regulation, to name but a very few. This increase in the number and scope of regulatory regimes has been matched by the huge growth of international organizations: nowadays over 2,000 intergovernmental organizations (IGO) and around 40,000 Non-governmental organizations (NGO) are operating worldwide. There are, of course, great differences among the various different types of regulatory regimes. Some merely provide a framework for State action, whereas others establish guidelines addressed to domestic administrative agencies, and others still impact directly upon national civil society actors. Some regulatory regimes create their own implementation mechanisms, while others rely on national or regional authorities for this task. To settle disputes, some regulatory regimes have established judicial (or quasi-judicial) bodies, or refer to those of different regimes; while others resort to “softer” forms, such as negotiation. Within this framework, the traditional mechanisms based on State consent as expressed through treaties or custom are simply no longer capable of accounting for all global activities. A new regulatory space is emerging, distinct from that of inter-State relations, transcending the sphere of influence of both international law and domestic administrative law: this can be defined as the global administrative space. IOs have become much more than instruments of the governments of their Member States; rather, they set their own norms and regulate their field of activity; they generate and follow their own, particular legal proceedings; and they can grant participatory rights to subjects, both public and private, affected by their activities. Ultimately, they have emerged as genuine global public administrations. In other words, the structures, procedures and normative standards for regulatory decision-making applicable to global institutions (including transparency, participation, and review), and the rule-governed mechanisms for implementing these standards are coming to form a specific field of legal theory and practice: that of global administrative law. The main focus of this emerging field is not the particular content of substantive rules generated by global regulatory institutions, but rather the actual or potential application of principles, procedural rules and reviewing and other mechanisms relating to accountability, transparency, participation, and the rule of law in global governance.

Professor Jan Blommaert: “Limits to Democracy”
Jan Blommaert, Professor of Linguistic Anthropology at Tilburg University and Visiting Professor in the PhD program in Applied Linguistics at Hellenic American University, meets the Greek public again οn February 27th 2015, with a talk entitled "The Limits to Democracy". The lecture is organized by the Hellenic American College Linguistics Department in cooperation with Hellenic American University (Manchester, NH, USA). Prof. Blommaert has provided us with the following abstract of his talk: This lecture will examine a discursive template that has emerged in the context of austerity politics all over the EU: that of "limited democracy". In this template, democratic procedures and principles are suggested to be subject - inferior - to concerns of a higher order, and two such concerns stand out. One, the economic conjuncture which needs to be turned around by means of more market-less government strategies, in which the democratic system is asked to withdraw from large sets of previously entrenched decision-making powers. Two, and as a corollary of the first one, security: threats to "political stability" are presented as danger for democracy and have to be met with new forms of informal justice and radical policing, jeopardizing (or undercutting) established civil liberties in a democratic society. The "limits to democracy" framework has spawned new social and political movements in the EU - Syriza, Podemos and several others - for whom the "crisis" is less an economic issue than a crisis of the fundamentals of the democratic system.

Legacy of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda
Perspectives on the Legacy of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda Featuring Barbara Mulvaney, Jill Rosenthal, Chiseche Mibenge, and Beth Van Schaack Just months after the ICTR concluded operations in Arusha and 22 years after the Rwandan genocide, scholars and practitioners will reflect on the court’s legacy. Panelists will offer diverse perspectives on the court’s record in providing accountability for genocide and other gross human rights violations, promoting peace and reconciliation in Rwanda, and contributing to a growing body of substantive and procedural international criminal law. Barbara Mulvaney is an International Human Rights Attorney and a former Senior Prosecutor for the United Nations International Criminal Tribunal on Rwanda. She was a Senior Advisor for the Iraqi Inspector General and Bureau of Supreme Audit, and Deputy Director for Constitutional and Legislative Affairs with the United States Department of State. Jill Rosenthal is an Acting Assistant Professor of History at Stanford. Her work focuses on the history of migration, identity, and international aid in the African Great Lakes region, with specific focus on transnational aid to Rwandan refugees in Tanzania as part of a broader project of nation state formation and regulation—one which deeply affected regional narratives of community and belonging. Chiseche Mibenge is the Haas Center for Public Service’s Director for Community Engaged Learning – Human Rights. Her book Sex and International Tribunals: The Erasure of Gender from the War Story was published by Penn Press. She has conducted fieldwork in Rwanda and Sierra Leone and clerked at the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia. Moderated by Beth Van Schaack, a Faculty Fellow with the Handa Center and Leah Kaplan Visiting Professor in Human Rights at Stanford Law School. Van Schaack teaches and writes in the areas of human rights, transitional justice, international criminal law, public international law, international humanitarian law, and civil procedure.

International Criminal Justice Beyond the ICC: the Extraordinary African Chambers
Interview with Mbacké Fall, Former Prosecutor of the Extraordinary African Chambers in Senegal, by Angela Mudukuti, International Criminal Justice Lawyer, Wayamo Foundation. ENGLISH TRANSLATION BELOW. What were the lessons learnt from the Extraordinary African Chambers, and what where the successes? We have had positive results. The African Chambers had a mandate to try those most responsible for the crimes committed in Chad during the period from 7 June 1982 to 1 December 1990. Habré and five of his closest collaborators were originally supposed to have been prosecuted but co-operation with Chad had its limits: Chad refused to surrender the five co-accused, invoking the principle of non-extradition of nationals. Through cross-checking, witness testimonies, and making thorough use of the Documentation & Security Directorate  (political police) records, we succeeded in gathering enough proof against Hissène Habré, which is why he was the only one to be held accountable by the court. The public prosecution succeeded in obtaining a guilty verdict against Hissène Habré on the counts of crimes against humanity, war crimes and torture. The Court accepted the victims’ claims for reparations and allocated funds for that purpose. The African Chambers have thus honoured their mandate. Does the development of specialised and internationalised courts mean the retreat of the work of the ICC? The ICC bases its work on the principle of complementarity, with the result that national jurisdictions have the prime responsibility for prosecutions and the ICC is a court of last resort. The creation of hybrid tribunals can bring the principle of complementarity into force. For example, if an ICC Member State wishes to adjudicate international crimes but lacks the necessary funds, the country can ask the African Union to create a structure such as the Extraordinary African Chambers. Funding is crucial and thus a major problem for the creation of such structures. International judicial co-operation is also essential, since without the co-operation of the country in which the evidence of the alleged crimes is to be found, funding is futile. What is the importance of victim participation, and how do we gain victims’ trust? In our civil law system victims have their own place in the procedure. Victims participate via civil proceedings, claiming reparations for the damages caused by the accused in the same way as in a public prosecution. When victims become civil parties to the action, they participate in the corroboration of proof and also bring elements of proof against the accused. It is the prosecutor who seeks a “guilty” verdict and a certain sentence. In all other respects, however, these people work alongside the prosecutor. Can we say that the only way to end impunity in Africa is through these specialised courts? This is not the only way to end impunity in Africa. It is primarily the national courts that play this role. But if States do not have the capacity to do so and if the African Union supports them in this task, there is nothing against intermediate structures being created, especially when such structures participate in ending impunity.

Joachim Savelsberg: Legal culture as memorial normativity (The Normative Complex)
Joachim Savelsberg (Minnesota/Bonn): Legal culture as memorial normativity? The concept of legal cultures: Culturalization or formalization? (Chair: Nina Dethloff) In the context of the conference: The normative complex: Legal cultures, validity cultures and normativities 9. & 10. April 2014 | Conference Room 2 in the Rohmühle | Rheinwerkallee 2 | 53227 Bonn -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Joachim Savelsberg (Minneapolis/Bonn): Sociologist. Professor at the Department of Sociology of the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis. Fellow at the Käte Hamburger Center for Advanced Study in the Humanities "Law as Culture" Nina Dethloff (Bonn): Legal scholar. Chair for Private Law, Private International Law, Comparative Law and European Private Law, Director of the Institute for German, European and International Family Law at the University of Bonn and Assistant Director of the Käte Hamburger Center for Advanced Study in the Humanities "Law as Culture" Werner Gephart (Bonn): Legal scholar, sociologist and artist. Professor of Sociology at Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-University Bonn, founder and director of the Käte Hamburger Center for Advanced Study in the Humanities "Law as Culture", editor of the volume "Recht" of the Max Weber-Gesamtausgabe (MWG I/22-3) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Conference: The normative complex: Legal cultures, validity cultures and normativities It is no exaggeration to speak of the rediscovery of the normative dimension of social life. Although for Talcott Parsons, the normative solution of the order problem should at least offer some orientation in the confusing field of social theory, numerous approaches taken by social and cultural sciences did not dwell on this discourse. Likewise, newer culture-theoretical access points also take scant notice of the world of law and normativity. Meanwhile, a need to deal with the basic question of the normative world anew and in novel ways is growing within the traditional disciplines dealing with questions pertaining to the normative-legal shaping of the world, i.e. jurisprudence, legal philosophy, legal theory, and also legal history. The reason that calls for heightened attention to be paid to the "realm of the normative", as Foucault called it, is apparent: Normative weight is shifting from the nation state to transnational spaces of law and validity. Simply put, the reason can be found in processes of globalization. The simultaneous increase in personal orders of validity rekindles culturally shaped minority laws and thereby heightens the potential that encounters of legal cultures do not only end in dialog, but also in conflict. The issue of familiarizing oneself with the world of norms of the other is then not simply a question of moral recognition but a precondition for intercultural communication through the medium of law. Cognitive competencies over legal-cultural idiosyncrasies and differences are therefore not only a matter of import for specialists or for legal training, but also for economic or political actors and further also for successful daily behavior. ... - TBC - more on: http://www.recht-als-kultur.de/en/activities/conferences-and-workshops.2/conference-the-normative-complex-legal-cultures-validity-cultures-and-normativities.107/ ______________________________________________________ www.law-as-culture.com - www.recht-als-kultur.de

Ben Fulford and David Wilcock on Russian TV: Cabal Defeat is Looming
Get Ascension Updates here: http://dwilcock.com 21 million people in Russia and neighboring countries watched REN-TV reveal the imminent defeat of the New World Order in this stunning expose' with Ben Fulford and David Wilcock. This three-hour 8PM documentary revealed how 26 underground bases were mysteriously destroyed between August 22, 2011 and January 2012 -- and explores who may have done it. The Russians explore uncomfortable truths with remarkable new detail and clarity, including the transfer of Nazi scientists to America after World War II under Project Paperclip. Never before has a major television series so thoroughly revealed the international alliance that has formed to encircle and defeat the Cabal. Neil Keenan's epic multi-billion-dollar lawsuit against the United Nations and other Cabal entities is discussed, as well as Fulford's own efforts to organize resistance efforts. Learn how the Federal Reserve deliberately created World War I and II to seize the world's gold -- and create a limitless supply of "bubble money" that could be printed out of thin air. The documentary ultimately stops short of naming BRICS -- Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa -- as the public face of this new alliance against the Federal Reserve. This alliance apparently now encompasses a majority of all countries in the world. The staff of REN-TV told us this show was wildly popular, reaching a stunning 21 million viewers. It is fast-paced and has an intense, dramatic musical score with lots of visuals. You may want to laugh or think this is all "crazy" -- but it was taken seriously enough to be developed into a major, prime-time special on a top Russian network. As David often has said, "if you throw up, you'll feel better" is a good analogy for what we all must learn in order to heal our planet. Without awareness there can be no resolution.

16. The Great War, Grief, and Memory (Guest Lecture by Bruno Cabanes)
France Since 1871 (HIST 276) The human cost of World War I cannot be understood only in terms of demographics. To better understand the consequences of the war upon both soldiers and civilians it is necessary to consider mourning in its private, as well as its public dimensions. Indeed, for many French people who lived through the war, public spectacles of bereavement, such as the Unknown Soldier, were also conceived of as intensely private affairs. Both types of mourning are associated with a wide variety of rituals and procedures. 00:00 - Chapter 1. Personal and Communal Mourning: Modes of Cultural Grief During and After the Great War 05:39 - Chapter 2. Communities in Mourning: Social Circles of Grief 15:57 - Chapter 3.
