Course Description

This course aims at giving students a practitioner's insights into the issues that arise in the negotiation, drafting and interpretation of some of the standard clauses found in international contracts. In doing so, the course will provide an overview of the different stakeholders involved in international transactions, their interests and how the legal tradition they come from may impact the way they think about the different boilerplate causes.
