Renvoi Questions

1) Why is there an exception to the rejection of renvoi concerning real property?

2) Why doesn't the adoption of renvoi "place the court in a perpetually-enclosed circle from which it could never emerge" (p. 63 in both the 7th and 8th eds.)?

3) In Schneider's Estate, when the New York court looked to Swiss law, it looked to the whole of Swiss law, including its choice-of-law rules. But when Swiss choice-of-law rules looked to New York law, it looked only to New York's internal law. Why? If New York accepts the renvoi, shouldn't Switzerland do so too?

4) Assume that every state has the same choice of law rules. Would it matter then whether a state accepts or rejects the renvoi? Would this difference make any difference in what law was ultimately chosen?

5) Is the argument that accepting the renvoi leads to unending circling any different from the following argument? "It is wrong to want to do what someone else wants to do. For if they want to do what you want to do, there will be unending circling and no one will be able to figure out what to do."

6) Is In re Annesley an unending circling case? Cutting through the renvoi knot, which country is most interested in having its law apply, England or France?
