[ Litigation ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] [ Transactional ] as a Related Elective for those interested in International Law : Whatever your subject matter expertise, it is increasingly likely that you will have to advise clients who may be subject to non-U.S. laws due to some aspect of their business operations. This course provides a useful overview of the way different laws may apply to multinational transactions, and the risks of doing business in places where the laws are not adequately enforced.
General course Description:
Lawyers are increasingly asked to advise clients with global operations. This course will provide a foundation for understanding the challenges faced by business entities that operate around the world and that are therefore subject to multiple and sometimes inconsistent national laws. We will review the types of laws that apply to cross-border and multinational transactions, as well as how variations in culture and legal systems affect the substance and application of those laws. We will also examine how treaties, international agreements and informal or political norms can constrain or supplement these laws and review the risks of doing business in communities whose laws are ineffective or unreliable.
