Why it is relevant for ...
[ Transactional ] as a Relevant Course outside SLS for those interested in International Business : A legal practice dealing with technology transactions requires an understanding of the different levels in a distribution chain, and the bundle of IP rights variously granted to each level. For example, a distributor of computer software may have a different license grant from the owner of the copyright than certain resellers do. This course addresses skills needed to market new technology-based products around the world or to manage global operations, with large networks of customers as well as service and support providers.
General course Description:
Globalization of businesses has resulted in companies having to manage global networks of suppliers, integrators, contract manufacturers, logistics service providers, distributors, and service support operators in geographically dispersed locations. The customer network is also globally distributed. This course will focus on (1) how global and international companies can overcome the geographical, cultural, and organizational barriers, and leverage the strengths of the network to create values, and (2) how these companies may use different ways to manage operations in different regions to take full advantage of the local strengths and limitations. The course will be based on cases on innovative strategies and tactics used by global and international companies.
Course Style: A Substantive course teaches the law, theory, and policy in a particular area of law
