This course analyzes basic international business transactions and the effects of U.S. law, specific foreign law, and treaties on the conduct of the parties involved. The course covers issues of commercial law, regulation of cross-border transactions, dispute resolution, tax considerations, and antitrust law. Although a basic understanding of each of the areas of the law in the domestic context is helpful, there are no course prerequisites. Students are expected to develop an understanding of the U.S. laws applicable to private international transactions and an awareness of the risks inherent in doing business in or with other countries and their nationals.

Grading Details

Evaluation will be based on an in-class final exam. Students will also be required to draft several contract provisions. No grade will be given on the draft clauses, but their submission is a requirement for completion of the course.
