The Miller Institute for Global Challenges and the Law presents a lecture on "Demystifying Personal Jurisdiction" by Prof. Simona Grossi (LLM '09, JSD '11), Loyola Law School. She argues that “the plethora of doctrines surrounding the law of personal jurisdiction has added more confusion to the law than they have coherence. Among other things, they confuse the sufficient with the necessary and they elevate the technicalities of doctrine over the fundamental principles at stake. As a consequence, I advocate a return to those principles traceable to International Shoe and Pennoyer and I suggest that these principles be codified in a ‘due-process-style’ rule premised on connecting factors and expectations.”
