Subject: Choice of Court study committee meeting March 5.
To: INTPIL at mail.americanbar.org

The Office of the Assistant Legal Adviser for Private International Law,
Department of State, has given notice of a public meeting of the ACPIL Study
Group on the Hague Convention on Choice of Court Agreements. The meeting
will take place on Monday, March 5, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., at the main State
Department building (Harry S Truman Building). This is not a meeting of the
full Advisory Committee.


The Study Group will meet to discuss the draft federal legislation that has
been developed to implement the Convention. It is proposed that the
Convention would be implemented through a ''cooperative federalism''
approach whereby states could elect to enact a uniform state act, which
would apply in that state in lieu of the federal statute.

Key issues to be discussed include: the scope of federal court jurisdiction
in actions brought to recognize or enforce the judgment of a foreign chosen
court; provisions on the statute of limitations for bringing
recognition/enforcement actions; and whether to prescribe the basis for
quasi in rem jurisdiction in recognition/enforcement actions. Participants
may comment also on other provisions of the draft federal legislation.
