This course examines the legal framework of the international business transaction by focussing on trade terms, the
Vienna Convention on the International Sale of Goods and the structure and finance of international trade. The course covers a
wide range of topics, including the commercial terms of the sales agreement, shipping contracts, financing arrangements
(letters of credit, electronic transfers, etc.), insurance and customs documentation. The course also examines the foreign
direct investment transaction, international franchise and distribution agreements and contracts for the transfer of
technology. International business regulation is also reviewed with particular attention focussed on the World Trade
Organization and regional trade agreements. Finally, dispute resolution is considered with emphasis on choice of law and
forum, arbitration and enforcement of arbitral awards and foreign judgements.
