In the World Series, the home team gets to play by its rules: In American League stadiums, teams use the designated hitter, and in National League stadiums, pitchers bat for themselves.

As litigation becomes increasingly international, clients more and more face litigation in tribunals outside of the United States, including foreign courts and regulatory bodies, multilateral institutions and international arbitration, many of which have different procedures than American courts.
