Summary

The structure and order of American Conflicts Law emphasizes 'choice of law' as the dominant theme. This traditional organization is important because the results in cases under the modern approaches change depending on relevant community policies, interests, and considerations applicable to particular areas of the law. Constitutional issues, the Erie doctrine, Judgments, and Personal Jurisdiction are treated in Chapters 7 through 10, respectively. This reflects the view of the authors and other Conflicts teachers that choice of law should represent the dominant theme of Conflict of Laws. Vertical choice of law (Erie) is given separate, expanded treatment in Chapter 8. Judgments are addressed in Chapter 9. Finally, Chapter 10 continues to present a thematic treatment of personal jurisdiction to reflect developments, primarily in the modern evolution of standards restricting state-court jurisdiction under the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.
