Summary

Some of the first considerations that come to mind when occurrences or parties implicate multiple states include jurisdiction, venue, or removal. However, a different kind of “border battle” too often overlooked by defense counsel is a conflicts of laws analysis. Can you convince the Illinois court that another state’s substantive laws should apply even though the Illinois court’s exercise of personal jurisdiction and venue are proper? This program will cover nuts and bolts of how, when and why defense counsel may choose to seek a determination of choice of law. Topics will include a discussion of the standards, issue spotting, potential pitfalls and possible benefits of seeking a determination of choice of law.
