Settlement of Transnational Disputes

455 AX | 2.0 credits


This course will survey the means, methods, and strategies by which transnational business disputes are resolved. It will explore related issues - such as the business and legal cultures and the practical and ethical concerns - affecting litigation, arbitration, and mediation through national and international fora, including the internet. The focus will be on commercial, trade, intellectual property, quasi-public (e.g., private investor vs. national government), and public law disputes. The course will rely in part on guest speakers with expertise in these areas.
