Smith de Bruin: Transnational Litigation: Jurisdiction and Procedure

Michelle Smith de Bruin has published Transnational Litigation: Jurisdiction and Procedure (Thomson Round Hall 2008). Here's the abstract:

Transnational Litigation Jurisdiction and Procedure is a new book that addresses the complex jurisdictional rules and procedural issues which arise when dealing with disputes which cross national boundaries. It focuses on the issues which are most likely to come across the desk of an Irish practitioner.

The primary focus is on the determination of jurisdiction and practical matters such as how to serve defendants out of the jurisdiction, choice of court clauses, service of proceedings, protective measures, the taking of evidence and cross border discovery, and the enforcement of judgments at home and abroad.
