About the Book

This unique new casebook emphasizes the knowledge and skills that students need to solve the real-world transnational legal problems they are likely to encounter as lawyers in today’s globalized world—regardless of their field of practice and regardless of whether they are interested in international law as such. The casebook covers public international law and international courts; but unlike traditional international law casebooks, it urges students not to be “international law-centric” or “international court-centric” and gives them the resources to learn how to use national law and national courts, and private norms and alternative dispute resolution methods, to solve transnational legal problems on behalf of their clients. 

Key Features
• Practice-oriented. Focuses on the knowledge and skills students need to solve real-world transnational legal problems on behalf of their clients.
• Covers not only international law and international courts, but also the role of national law, national courts, and alternative dispute resolution in transnational practice.
• Comparative perspectives throughout.
• Written by a team of authors with a wide range of expertise and experience in transnational litigation, arbitration, international law, constitutional law and transnational business transactions.
