Symposium on Extraterritorialism

The Cornell Law Review will publish its annual Symposium issue for Volume 99 with a focus on extraterritorialism in September 2014. The flurry of recent Supreme Court decisions turning on a revived door-closing territorialism is attracting the attention of legal scholars in various substantive as well as methodological fields of federal law, and the lines of debate are forming. With Morrison v. Nat’l Austl. Bank Ltd. now limiting securities fraud cases territorially and the fate of alien tort litigation hanging on the territorial question in Kiobel v. Royal Dutch Petroleum, the Supreme Court’s infatuation with extraterritoriality is heating up. The Symposium issue follows a presentation of the Articles at the annual AALS Conference in January 2014.
