Professors Silberman and Ferrari edit an anthology on “Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Judgments”

Professors Linda J. Silberman, the Clarence D. Ashley Professor of Law and Co-Director of the Center, and Franco Ferrari, the Center’s Executive Director, two experts on conflict of laws, have just published an anthology on the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments. This anthology offers a 24-article tour of the history, principles and future of the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments. The collection of seminal pieces selected reflects the viewpoints of authors from different countries and legal systems and explores different approaches to, and comparative perspectives of, judgment recognition and enforcement. Topics covered include the special issues of the revenue rule and the role of public law, the effects of fraud, the scope of preclusion, and the impact of class actions. The collection also looks to the future, considering possible solutions to harmonizing recognition and enforcement and assessing how the development of human rights may impact judgement recognition and enforcement. Prefaced by an original and informative introduction by the editors, the anthology is an essential resource for those studying, researching or practicing in this area.
