This course focuses on the study of business transactions and international trade. We consider the complex issues of law that practitioners come across in private international transactions, including trade (exporting), the licensing of intellectual property, or engaging in foreign direct investment.
The course seeks to enable future practitioners to take important “risk management” approaches to the handling of complex business transactions. We seek to develop an understanding of the various aspects of international business transactions, identifying the issues that may pose problems to businesses. We consider models for taking risks out of international business transactions.
We will also learn about the resolution of disputes between companies located in different countries, considering both legal and tactical issues.
The objective of the course is to develop confidence and skills in identifying issues, determining problem areas and providing advice to future clients.
