How the international and U.S. domestic legal systems relate to structuring international business transactions. The course begins with an overview of the roles of lawyers, multinational enterprises, national courts, arbitrators, and international organizations, e.g., GATT and the IMF, in facilitating capital movement. The course then moves to a series of transactional problems in foreign investment, including distributorships and licensing technology, establishment of foreign operations, organization of joint ventures, negotiation of development agreements, and loans to foreign sovereigns.

First Class Readings

First class week readings will be posted on the Mywcl class page a week before classes begin. All the first week readings will be available online; you do not need to purchase the textbooks for the first week if you are unsure whether you will stay in the course. You will need the textbooks starting the second week. Please get the exact editions specified; earlier editions will not work. (These texts have been around for several years, so you can probably find pretty cheap used texts online.) The syllabus will be posted in the second week of August before classes begin.
