Description
This course is designed to give students a broad overview of the law governing international business transactions.  There are no prerequisites.  We will begin by examining general legal issues raised by international transactions, including the role of international lawyers; international dispute resolution; the role of international law in the U.S.  legal system; the extraterritorial application of domestic law; and the function of regional and international economic institutions such as the WTO and NAFTA.  We will then explore various legal issues raised by specific kinds of international transactions, including transnational sales; agency and distributorship agreements; licensing of intellectual property; foreign direct investment; mergers and acquisitions; joint ventures; concession agreements; and international debt instruments.
