Prof. Emmert Teaches Indiana Judicial College About International Law
Prof. Frank Emmert, John S. Grimes Professor of Law, taught a three-hour session at the Indiana Judicial College on April 19. Prof. Emmert’s session “Why is International Law Important to Judges in Indiana?” covered questions concerning cases that have a connection to foreign jurisdictions that may require a decision on whether and why local courts should have jurisdiction. There was also a discussion of cases that may require application of international or even foreign law in addition to or instead of U.S. and/or Indiana law. Specific examples included contracts with foreign entities, rights of foreign arrestees, and issues connected to the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments. Prof. Emmert is the Director of the Center for International and Comparative Law and oversees the law school’s summer programs in Croatia and France.
