Transnational Business Law and Regulation (Permission Only) (LAW-910-001)
David Snyder, Fernanda Nicola
Students can not enroll directly in this course and must apply through the WCL Abroad portal.
This course surveys practice areas in international and EU business law and regulation. The first half of the course takes place in London and introduces the different components of international business practice, such as international corporate law; international commercial transactions and commercial finance; international commercial and investment arbitration; and (time permitting) international tax strategies. The second half of the course is held in Brussels and emphasizes EU regulation of international business. Particular attention is paid to current issues such as competition (antitrust), data privacy, trade and investment, and lawyering skills in the EU. In both Brussels and London site visits are made to leading institutions, typically including the Legal Services of the European Commission, Parliament and Council of the EU, transnational law firms, legal and economic entities (such as the English bar and a multilateral development bank). Each site visit includes expert instruction, sometimes by some of the most prominent regulators and practitioners in the world and sometimes by younger lawyers who are currently doing the work that current students will be doing within a few years of graduation. The goal of the course is to provide an overview of international business practice with a European emphasis.
