[ Transactional ] International Law: General

Why it is relevant for ...

[ Transactional ] as a Related Elective for those interested in Latin America : Practitioners have noted that it's important to understand the economic, political and cultural forces in a particular region in order to build relationships in that region. This course will be particularly useful for students interested in a transactional practice focused on Latin American countries like Brazil. It examines how problems of enforceability and patterns of corporate ownership, among other factors, affect the typical structure of business deals in the region.

General course Description:

This course addresses value creation by business lawyers by examining how private parties structure their business transactions in Latin America, with a special emphasis on Brazil. It will focus, in particular, on the extent to which deal structures that are prevalent in the United States can travel well, or require adjusting, to this particular context. The first part of the course will explore barriers to contracting, such as risk and uncertainty, information problems, contract enforceability, and the Latin American legal and economic environments, as well as the tools available to overcome those barriers. The second part of the course will examine how the patterns of corporate ownership and control prevailing in the region shape the style and structure of business deals. Throughout the course, we will apply these concepts to a series of transactions that reflect the changing economic landscape in Latin America. This course is taught in conjunction with Law 755A. Students may enroll for this course alone or for both this course and Law 755A. As one of the new SLS Overseas Courses, the first eight weeks of the course will coincide with the first eight weeks of the Winter Quarter, and will be conducted at Stanford Law School. Students will have the option of participating in a one-week extension of the course in São Paulo during spring break for an additional credit. While in São Paulo, the class will meet local lawyers, clients, and regulators to discuss Brazilian deals in joint sessions with students from FGV Law School. The overseas portion of the course will be co-taught with George Triantis. Elements used in grading: Class Participation, Written Assignments, Final Exam. Special instructions: After the term begins, students accepted into Law 755 may enroll in Law 755A (São Paulo option) for one credit with consent of instructor. If more than 12 students apply for the São Paulo option, students will be selected by a random lottery.
