AILC is an annual case law reporter that provides the full text of U.S. court opinions involving international law issues. The courts covered include all U.S. federal district courts, federal appellate courts, and the U.S. Supreme Court, as well as some state courts, the U.S. Court of Claims,the U.S. Court of International Trade, and the U.S. Tax Court. The series seeks to provide not every single case in which a court refers to international law but rather all cases that analyze at least one international law issue in depth. The list of subjects addressed by these volumes is vast andchanges from year to year, with the inclusion and prominence of most topics turning on their prevalence in a given year's jurisprudence. Some consistently prominent topics are personal jurisdiction over foreign defendants, deportation procedure, and double taxation. Over the last three editions(2006, 2007, and 2008), many topics have developed rapidly and constitute a correspondingly larger portion of the volumes, particularly Terrorism, the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, Forum Non Conveniens, and an entirely new, added topic: the National Security Exception (to deportationeligibility). The 2008 edition of AILC also features expanded sections on family law and on the detention of terrorist suspects.

The 2008 edition of AILC also features expanded sections on family law and on thedetention of terrorist suspects. The U.S. war on terror and the crisis at Guantanamo have made that last topic a significant and dynamic component of AILC. Each edition of AILC also comes framed with two practical resources for students and scholars. The first is an introductory editor's note thatboth reviews international law's major developments for the given year and explains to readers how to use the volumes. The second is a subject index to allow for targeted research. Volume Two of AILC consists of representative cases on procedural issues such as extraterritoriality and subject matter jurisdiction, forum selection clauses, and in rem and diversity jurisdiction. For example, BBC Chartering and Logistic v. Siemens Wind Power (S.D. Tex. 2008) address the forumselection clauses in a business contract, which is a procedural issue regarding jurisdiction. In Seung Woo Lee v. Imaging3, Inc. (9th Cir. 2008), the choice of law issue arises in the context of an international commercial dispute over the sale and delivery of medical imaging devices. In a VolumeTwo case that reflects the legal complexities engendered by modern communication, the U.S. Court for the District of Maryland ruled that a telecommunications company does not subject itself to the jurisdiction of the Court by allowing its clients to text-message non-clients in Maryland (TechnologyPatents LLC v. Deutsche Telekom AG). Another case in Volume Two, AIG v. Greenberg, echoes the public outrage over the 2008 financial crash. The New York state court in that case ruled that former AIG executives who fled the U.S. could not claim improper service of process just because the country towhich they fled made a reservation to the Hague Convention on Service Abroad. Although Volume Two deals strictly with procedural issues, the reigning social and economic issues of our time (technological advancement and financial instability) still find their way into this volume's cases.
