This subject aims to provide students with an understanding of the legal environment framework within which business is conducted internationally. Specifically, the unit will cover the nature of international law and its application in a variety of countries; international organisations such as the UN, the OECD and the WTO; the contractual law that applies to international transactions (CISG); the establishment of operations in another country; the protection of IP and Electronic commerce; the international payment systems; foreign investment; and international taxation issues. Students will begin to appreciate what laws apply in given situations and how these laws operate. Students will also develop skills in reading, understanding and applying International treaties and conventions, statutes, case materials and journal articles. This involves the development of comprehension skills, legal literacy, and the students’ ability to analyse problems and to express ideas in a precise manner.
