International Deals: The Economic Structure of Business Transactions

Law School

Recommended for route(s):

[ Transactional ] International Law: General

Why it is relevant for ...

[ Transactional ] as a Key Elective for those interested in International Business : Business lawyers are increasingly structuring and negotiating international deals. This course provides a useful look at the problems of imperfect information when structuring an international deal, examining transactions first from the point of view of economic theory and then taking a closer look at the structure of the deal. Students will also benefit from hearing about the actual experience of guest speakers who worked on the transactions under consideration.

General course Description:

This course applies economic theory to the practice of structuring contracts. In the first part of the course, we read economics articles and case studies, focusing on problems of imperfect information. In the second part, we explore the connection between economic theory and contracting practice by dividing into groups to study a current deal. Groups examine a deal in detail and make a presentation to the class. We then hear from the lawyer or principal who worked on that deal. When it works, the students' and the practitioners' analyses are complimentary and enlightening. This year, we will focus on deals with an international component. In the past, we have examined cross-border joint ventures, movie and television financings, biotech alliances, venture capital financings, private equity investments, and architectural services. Elements used in grading: Class Participation, Attendance, Written Assignments, Final Exam. Prerequisite: Corporations. If necessary, Corporations can be taken concurrently.
