Spring 2020
LAW351  AW  INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS LAW SEMINAR

Course Description
This seminar will examine specific legal issues related to international business and the transnational law governing economic relations. In Spring 2019, the focus will be on the topic of security. We will study economic security policy and strategic choices faced by governments, international organizations, and the private sector. These choices are shaped by legal regimes including international trade law and its national security exception; cross-border transactions and investment, and in particular the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States; the U.S. Department of the Treasury sanctions tool and its authorizing legislation; and the national and international laws and regulations governing cybersecurity for the private sector.
