This course examines contracts used by businesses to create and govern their relationships with various parties, including owners, employees, suppliers, and customers. The course is a variant of the first-year Contracts course and is open only to LL.M. students. Students will study basic contract law rules as well as common issues transactional lawyers face in negotiating and drafting business contracts. As part of this study, the course will present both common law and Uniform Commercial Code (Article 2 UCC) contract principles. Given the transnational nature of business today, students will be introduced to international contract rules under the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). This course is highly recommended to LL.M. students pursuing the Business Law Certificate.
