Description

Course Description*

The course provides an examination of the contractual and regulatory issues that arise when business dealings cross borders. It is structured in two parts. Part I consists of a discussion of the environment of international business, including dispute resolution, the place of international law in the US legal system, and the extraterritorial application of domestic law.

Part II then builds upon this framework to explore eight representative transactions that lawyers advising businesses are likely to encounter: (i) export sales, (ii) agency and distributorship, (iii) licensing, (iv) foreign direct investment, (v) mergers and acquisitions, (vi) joint ventures, (vii) development (concession) agreements, and (viii) international debt instruments.

US, foreign, and international legal rules will be explored throughout the course.
