Recent Developments in the Law of Personal Jurisdiction

This course will provide a legal and practical presentation on the law of general and specific personal jurisdiction, focusing on recent developments in the law at the state and federal level, including the "stream of commerce" theory, weighing statutory and constitutional requirements, and jurisdiction by consent or registration. We will also cover the due diligence that all careful practitioners -- plaintiffs and defendants -- should consider before deciding whether to contest or concede personal jurisdiction.
