Governing Law/Choice of Laws/Venue
Choice of Laws. Any provision that calls for the application of another state's laws or requires WSU to submit to the jurisdiction of another state's court must be deleted. If you are not able to negotiate the exclusion of such a provision, please contact University Legal Counsel.
Example of acceptable language:
"The construction, interpretation, and performance of this Agreement and all associated or resultant transactions shall be governed in accordance with the laws of the State of Utah, without reference to its conflict of laws rules. The Parties consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts of Utah and specifically waive any objection to disputes regarding or relating to this Agreement being litigated solely in the courts of the State of Utah."
