International Business Transactions

Cross-border business transactions are the mainstay of the modern global economy, and thus an understanding of the legal aspects of private transactions carried out across national borders can be indispensable to the modern legal practice. This two unit course will provide a survey of such issues, including transnational sales, cross-border operations (including through branch offices and subsidiaries), international business combinations (such as mergers and joint ventures), and the role of international law (including treaties and international organizations such as the WTO and IMF). A series of problems will be used to explore the dynamics of planning, negotiating, creating and executing cross-border transactions. The course grade will be based primarily on an in-class final examination, which will consist of short to medium essay questions, and class participation. The final will be open book. Since the course is in the nature of a survey, no particular background or prerequisites are necessary, although some may find it useful to have taken or be taking Business Associations and/or International Law. 2 units.
