During the weekends of November 21 and 28, 2014, Professors Andrew Guzman and Stavros Gadinis offered courses on international business in Seoul, Korea. More than 25 lawyers from Korea’s leading government agencies, law firms, and corporations attended. Professor Guzman, who presented a course on international commercial arbitration, covered the full life-cycle of an arbitration, from the negotiation and drafting of an arbitration clause through the arbitration itself, annulment proceedings, and finally enforcement of the arbitral award. Introducing international finance, Professor Gadinis discussed various transaction structures, the influence of U.S. law, the extraterritorial applications of securities laws, disclosure obligations and liability for fraud.
The courses continue the partnership between the Korea Law Center and Law Times, the leading legal publication in Korea. Past Berkeley Law faculty have offered seminars including international litigation, corporate finance, intellectual property, and electronic privacy and security.
