Main and McCaffrey Publish Transnational Litigation Book

August 12, 2009

Professors Thom Main and Steve McCaffrey were thrilled to complete a major project this spring when Oxford University Press published their new book, Transnational Litigation in Comparative Perspective — Theory and Application.

The 744-page hardback is touted as the only casebook that examines the subject's principal issues in a comparative context. Each chapter focuses on a specific core problem that all legal systems must address. The first half of each chapter explores the legal theory involved in the issue, and the second half details the varying approaches different systems use to address the challenge in question.

Main is using the book this fall in his course, Transnational Litigation, which has a blend of LLM in Transnational Business Practice students and upper-division JD students.
