International Commercial Transactions

The course covers the main legal aspects of negotiating, drafting and implementing international commercial transactions, starting with a general update on international contracts law (including conflicts of laws), the usual content of international commercial contracts and how they are negotiated, and then digging into the specifics of international sales contracts, corporate transactions, distribution, agency and franchising contracts, transportation, construction and turnkey projects, as well as collaboration and consortium contracts, looking for each of them at (international) applicable rules (including a comparative approach), conflicts of laws and usual content (including through case studies).
