Why it is relevant for ...

[ Academia ] [ Litigation ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] [ Transactional ] as a Related Elective for those interested in International Finance : If you expect to handle cross-border investments in some way, whether representing a private client making a direct investment or a quasi-public agency seeking to compete for capital, this course will be useful. It examines the legal framework and the various treaties that apply to foreign investments, particularly in emerging markets. It also evaluates dispute resolution procedures and institutions that may become essential when problems arise in the foreign jurisdiction.

General course Description:

This seminar will investigate legal, economic and political issues impacting foreign investment, including: the role of foreign direct investment in the economic development of poor countries; legal and diplomatic strategies for states in emerging markets to compete for foreign capital; and the implementation of the international investment arbitration treaty regime. We will examine the legal framework for cross-border investment established in bilateral investment treaties, investment provisions of regional or multilateral treaties, customary international law, and the domestic law and regulatory institutions of host nations. Substantive principles, including prohibitions on direct and indirect expropriation, and guarantees of fair and equitable treatment, will be examined in the context of applicable legal instruments. We will consider the challenges associated with the twin goals of mitigating investment risk for investors while also allowing developing states to address urgent public policy concerns. We will also examine and evaluate how effectively treaty-based dispute resolution processes and institutions enable investors and states to effectively resolve disputes. These mechanisms include investor-state arbitration by tribunals convened pursuant to the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) and other arbitral institutions.

Course Style: A Substantive/ Perspective course looks at law from an external or non-traditional standpoint.

Course Frequency: Varied, check w/ registrar
