For lawyers working in the field of international economic law or international business law it is not anymore sufficient to only have a good doctrinal knowledge of the relevant laws and regulations.
To be a competent advisor to public policy makers and businesses, lawyers also need a thorough understanding of the economic activities that international trade laws govern.
In this class we introduce participants to the relevant management and economic theory that help them to understand the economic logic that underlies these laws. We will start our inquiry by analyzing the major risk sources that can potentially hinder international trade.
On this basis we examine which legal and financial solutions countries and businesses can rely on in order to protect their trade activities. In our analysis we combine both, a macroeconomic, i.e. public law and a microeconomic, i.e. private law perspective on the relevant economic issues.
Course participants will thus be able to better understand the functioning of the globalized economy and the problems and needs of businesses that participate in cross-border transactions.
The class ends with a comprehensive cases study in which participants have to actively apply the acquired knowledge.
