Drafting Landmines: Choice-Of-Law Provisions


One time I found myself on the set of a Hollywood soundstage for a popular television show about a lawyer. In the law library of the fake TV law firm, I noticed something that viewers at home couldn’t see: the case reporters containing judicial decisions were all out of order—the volumes were shelved randomly, not according to number. That, of course, would have made the books useless if this were a real law library.
