In an interdependent, globalized economy, knowledge and understanding of the way in which business is conducted across national borders is indispensable to all business lawyers. The main focus of our discussion and study will be the legal aspects of private transactions that involve parties, goods, services or capital crossing national borders, rather than matters pertaining to national and international trade regulation. We will examine three basic methods of doing business abroad: the sales of goods (export) transaction, licensing and franchising (mostly in the context of intellectual property), and foreign direct investment.

Subject Areas: Business Organization, Commercial Law, and Finance , International, Comparative & Foreign Law .
