This is also an excellent hornbook. “While many conflicts problems can be resolved through negotiation, mediation, or arbitration, most of them end up in litigation. In planning for this eventuality, or when forced to confront it, parties involved in multistate activity should keep in mind three major questions: (1) Where can or should litigation be initiatied? (2) Which law will the court apply? and (3) Where can the resulting judgment be enforced? These three questions correspond to the three consecutive phases that comprise the process of judicial resolution of most conflicts problems, namely: (1) jurisdiction; (2) choice of law; and (3) recognition and enforcement of judgments. In the United States and other common-law systems, these are also the three major divisions of the law of Conflicts of Laws. The organization of this book follows these three divisions.” [page 3]
