In Arbitration, if completed, results in an award. That award must be enforced. In order to do so, it is necessary to enter judgment with respect thereto. The first problem is the acquisition of personal jurisdiction over the defendant for this purpose, in the event that it has not already been acquired previously in connection with proceedings to compel arbitration. The subject of acquiring jurisdiction will not be dealt with in this note because it does not differ too much from the general problems of acquiring jurisdiction in personam with respect to proceedings to compel jurisdiction. We shall therefore be concerned particularly with the problems of conflicts of laws in the enforcement of the award or judgment on the award.
