We have just learned that the U.S. Secretary of State has authorized the signature of the United States to the Hague Conference on Private International Law Choice of Courts Convention. Click here to see the text of the convention. To date, Mexico is the only nation to have become a party to the Choice of Courts Convention.
And with a small delay (but still highly interesting and relevant), click here for the Commission of the European Union's decision to recommend that the European Union join the Choice of Courts Convention as well. Download Commission_Decision_on_Choice_of_Court.pdf
Momentum is clearly building for this treaty.
