Brigham Young University Prelaw Review


MItsubishi, Soler Chrysler-Plymouth


Mitsubishi Motors Corporation v. Soler Chrysler-Plymouth, Inc. (Mitsubishi v. Soler) represents a watershed in international jurisprudence. The decision of the justices which heard this case is the precedent cited in a number of subsequent cases. It has defined many parameters of the international trading system. Part of its prominence stems from the significant breadth of its scope. Mitsubishi v. Soler deals with issues of international arbitral agreements, antitrust on an international level, the validity of forum selection clauses, and the domestic enforcement of the Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards. In sum, these issues have greatly influenced the course and future of international trade.
