Asia in U.S. Courts is a blog for chronicling the judicial phenomenon of increasing importance: parties from Asia, litigating in the United States. The goal of the blog is to have a closer look at how foreign parties from Asia come to find themselves in the U.S. courts, how they utilize the U.S. judicial system, and how they fare as plaintiffs, defendants, or third parties.
What I like about the blog is that it uses the “case of the day” format. I think that format is not only useful for readers trying to keep up in a particular field, but useful for the blogger, too, as a disciplined way to keep up and to deepen his or her expertise. I also like the geographic orientation of the blog. There are lots of ways to carve off slices of the world that make sense. My main way, as you know, is based on fairly narrow subject-matters, but I cut across geography. Nathan is focused on Asia-related cases, but he cuts across subject-matters. Recent cases involve the extraterritorial application of equitable orders for the conveyance of real property and extraterritorial application of the Lanham Act.
Nathan has kindly agreed to do a guest-post for Letters Blogatory, and in the meanwhile, I encourage you to check out his blog!
