SUMMARY OF COURSE CONTENT (Please also see the Outline below)
The course will cover the range of legal issues that businesses face in international trade law in their everyday dealings as global corporations. The course will look to the American and European legal system, in light of their influence in the development of commercial law around the world, but it also views this system from a global perspective. International cases and discussion of current issues will bring to life the law's various analytic frameworks. The course is highly INTERACTIVE and participative therefore it is mandatory that students do the pre-class homework.
