LAW 6306 - International Business Transactions


International globalization and communications over the Internet have made it a certainty that almost every area of the practice of law in the 21st Century will at some point touch upon international commerce. This course introduces students to the legal aspects of doing business abroad, particularly in developing countries. The topics are relevant not only for students who hope to learn to deal with problems faced by large multinational corporations investing in foreign nationals, but also for students who will work in rural areas where local merchants may be importing crafts or specialty items for resale. Students will develop the tools necessary to assist their clients in writing international contracts, anticipating problems, and resolving conflicts that develop along the way. Some of the topics covered in the course include international contracting, international financing, choice of law and forum problems, forms of direct and indirect foreign investment, transfer of technology problems, transnational litigation, arbitration and other forms of dispute resolution, and a survey of U.S. and European antitrust laws and how these laws are impacted by international treaties and laws.
