Objectifs pédagogiques

Although globalization and the resultant trend toward convergence in business laws are a reality, laws and regulations continue to vary – often substantially – from one country to another and often within a given country. The course is designed to provide students with an overview of the framework of international business law. The first part of the course will consist of a brief overview of the existing international regulatory bodies in international business and address additional legal issues stemming from the globalization of business.  The second part of the course aims to cover issues affecting private international relationships in a business context, such international contracts, the resolution of international commercial disputes, and intellectual property protection.
