Indiana Law students can build their own plan of study by taking classes from a number of different areas, or they can choose an area of focus.
Description This course provides students with a survey of the legal aspects of international business transactions (IBT). It introduces students to the legal mechanics of IBT and the legal instruments and strategies used in the global business and commercial environment. Students will learn what kinds of transactions lawyers representing private entities face in the international context, how to approach such transactions in practical ways, and how larger policy concerns and controversies affect the lawyer's responsibilities in the global business arena. The course starts by covering the basic tasks and legal toolkit of engaging in IBT, which involves understanding multinational companies, basics of various aspects of international law and dispute settlement planning for IBT engagement. Then, the course addresses specific transaction categories, including international sales transactions, agency and distribution agreements, licensing agreements, foreign direct investment, joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, and transactions with sovereign governments. The course will also explore methods used to regulate the social and environmental implications of international business activity. No prior exposure to corporations, securities regulation, international law, or international trade is required for this course.
