Since 1985 International Judicial Assistance has been the authoritative practice guide and standard reference work for attorneys involved in transnational litigation. The work has been cited repeatedly by the U.S. Supreme Court and lower courts and in scholarly publications. The authors' extensive practical commentary is supplemented by numerous appendices, including all relevant international conventions, country-by- country indexes of pertinent bilateral treaties and blocking legislation, bilateral and multi-lateral treaties, and pertinent U.S. legislation. Volumes 1--2: Civil and Commercial The International Law Institute published the first two volumes of International Judicial Assistance, on civil and commercial matters, written by Bruno A. Ristau, in 1985. Mr Ristau presents a thorough treatment of discovery and service of documents abroad; discusses judicial assistance rendered to American courts or litigants by foreign courts as well as assistance by U.S. courts to foreign litigants; and provides convenient forms on all aspects of international judicial assistance. He also analyzes the major international conventions and the case law bearing upon those conventions in the United States and other signatory states. Volumes 3--6: Criminal In 1990 the Institute added four volumes on International Judicial Assistance in criminal matters, by Michael Abbell with the collaboration of Bruno A. Ristau. Surpassing any other publication, these volumes guide the attorney who must obtain evidence abroad or obtain evidence in the United States for foreign litigation, who needs to effect extradition to or from the United States, or who is involved in international transfer of prisoners.
