This course provides an introduction to the common law of contracts. We will cover the bases of contractual liability, the bargain relationship, avoidance, performance, and remedies. In addition to examining case law we will study the Restatement (Second) of Contracts and, where appropriate, the Uniform Commercial Code. 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.
