College courses are involved in nearly all study programs. This is true of everything from bachelor programs to master’s degree programs. To enroll in a college course, you must have graduated high school. Additionally, most courses last for a few months.

What is a course in litigation? Litigation refers to the disputes between two people or entities that are not criminal in nature. Whenever one person feels that another has wronged him or her somehow without committing a crime, all the principals of litigation are at play. This kind of course focuses on the legal system, courtroom dynamics and processes, as well as the laws that govern legal conflicts and precedent.

Studying litigation helps students develop a set of skills that will be invaluable as they begin their career. In many cases, these skills open up new working opportunities, or they can increase potential salary. For those studying litigation, these skills include conducting legal research, resolving disputes, communicating, and critical thinking.

The fees associated with enrolling in a litigation course vary quite a bit. The exact amount will be different depending on your school and program, the country you are studying in, the length of study, and the type of degree you are earning, if you are earning a degree.

Because this field of study is really only applicable to law, it is likely that a graduate’s only career choice is to become a lawyer or another position related to lawyers. It is possible to become a defense or prosecuting attorney, legal secretary, paralegal, or litigation lawyer. While it is less common, it may also be possible to pursue a career as a politician or judge after studying litigation.

Recognition of Foreign Judgments

The 3-credit course “Recognition of Foreign Judgments” in fact involves two distinct procedures, the "recognition" of a foreign judgment and the "enforcement" of that judgment based upon the status granted to it by a domestic court. In a recognition proceeding, a court in one country is asked to accept a judicial decision rendered by a court of a "foreign" country and to issue a judgment in substantially identical form without re-examining the merits of the original lawsuit. In an enforcement proceeding, if the recognized foreign judgment is a money judgment and the debtor has assets in the receiving jurisdiction, the successful judgment creditor will gain access to all of the enforcement remedies available in the recognizing country in order to execute the judgment.
