Course Description:

International Business Law is designed to be an upper-level course that will familiarize the student with the principles, laws and organizations that regulate and control international trade. Additionally, this course will allow that student to explore the managerial, "real-life" implications of the application of those principles, law and rules. International law is an increasingly critical part of the business world -- not only for those companies engaged directly in import or export of finished goods for sale, but also for those traditionally "domestic" companies that use raw materials or those companies that have been drawn into the web economy, an economy without borders. Throughout the course, the students will be exposed to the cultural and ethical issues that arise in international trade and will be expected to apply their learning to specific case studies that involve not only legal problems but ethical ones as well. The course will focus on both the European Community and North American trade partners and the developing and nonmarket economies, such as the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe.

Prerequisites: Management Principles, Legal Environment of Business 1, Legal Environment of Business 2 or equivalents.
