The course provides an examination of the legal issues that arise when business dealings span
different nations. It is structured in two parts. Part I consists of a discussion of the environment
of international business, including an introduction to international dispute resolution and transnational law. Next, the world economic environment is considered, with a focus on the
impact of GATT/WTO. Part I concludes by considering the role of transnational corporate
actors.

Part II then builds upon this legal framework to explore eight representative transactions that
lawyers advising corporations are likely to encounter: (i) export sales, (ii) agency and
distributorship, (iii) licensing, (iv) foreign direct investment, (v) mergers and acquisitions, (vi)joint ventures, (vii) development (concession) agreements, and (viii) international debt
instruments.

US, foreign and international legal rules will be explored throughout the course.
