LAW A 578 International Business Transactions
Credits: 1-4, Variable
This course focuses on international business transactions from the "micro" perspective of the private international business actor rather than the "macro" perspective of public policy. The emphasis will be on the analysis of issues that are peculiar to, or especially prevalent in, the formation and enforcement of international business agreements between private parties. A number of archetypal international transactions will be examined, such as the sales of goods, foreign direct investment, business franchising, and intellectual property licensing. In addition, the course will also explore some issues in the regulation of international trade and investment from the "macro" perspective.
