Description
This seminar will examine current issues in the law -- domestic, foreign and international -- relating to international investment transactions.  We will begin with an overview of the role of transnational law and transnational lawyers in investment transactions.  We will then focus on specific problems involving investment activities, including foreign direct investment, international mergers and acquisitions, international joint ventures, concession agreements, and international debt instruments.

The basic text for this seminar is Vagts, Dodge and Koh, Transnational Business Problems (4th ed.  2008).  In addition, students will read an array of secondary source materials relating to current issues in international investment law.

This is a writing seminar.  Students will be required to write several short papers on the assigned readings, and a longer research paper on a specific current legal issue relating to international investment.
