Beyond Borders: Extraterritoriality in American Law Symposium

On November 12, 2010, Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles, California is hosting a symposium titled Beyond Borders: Extraterritoriality in American Law. This one-day symposium will bring together leading legal figures from throughout the country to analyze critical issues related to transnational litigation and extraterritorial regulation.  Do U.S. law stop at the border?  If not, when do they – or when should they – govern the conduct of people abroad?  From the controversial extraterritorial application of U.S. domestic law, to the contentious uses of universal jurisdiction in the human rights context, to debates over the extent to which the U.S. Constitution applies outside U.S. territory, a flurry of recent scholarship has involved disputes over the geographic reach of domestic law. 

The symposium will bring together leading scholars to discuss the history, doctrine, and current issues related to extraterritoriality.  The proceedings will be published in the Southwestern Law Review and distributed widely.  The following professors are participating in the symposium (listed alphabetically):
