Learn to handle the most complex and exciting legal transactions: international business law transactions.

Doing this course was and is one of the best choices that I have made in my life. I thoroughly enjoyed the interaction with my teachers and they managed to make very comlicated matter easily to digest.

This course is taught by lawyers with international practice and teaching experience, and leading psychologists from our Department of Psychology - ranked in the top 100 of the world.

Our International Business Law course is usually taken together as a two-week course with the Advocacy course.

To imagine the complexity of international business law transactions, one needs to think of the complexity of domestic business law transactions and then multiply that by the number of countries involved. This complexity, however, turns into excitement when you have unravelled the puzzle of these transactions - when you fully understand how to handle them, and this is what this course does - it teaches you how to deal with international business law transactions in practice.

Is this course for you?

If you wish to learn about what can go wrong with an international transaction (transactional and litigation risks); how to draft water-tight contracts that prevent these risks and litigation tricks from materialising; and about people differences, population differences and how these affect us and what we do, then this course is for you.

Whether you are a businessperson who wishes to better negotiate and minimise risks; a lawyer switching area of practice; a law graduate wishing to learn about business law in practice; or someone with an interest in international business law - you will benefit from this course, because it deals with the practical application of law, and your legal expertise will be enhanced with the latest insights from psychological science.

What we will cover in the course:

  • International Dispute Resolution - International Commercial Litigation
  • International Dispute Resolution - International Commercial Arbitration
  • Conflict of Laws/Private International Law
  • Key legal systems and organisations influencing international business law (UK & US Legal Systems, United Nations, Commercial Finance Association etc.)
  • International Commercial Finance: Cross-border Asset-Based Lending
  • Organisational Psychology: Individuals, Groups and Cultures

We will place focus on:

  • How to prevent and manage transactional and litigation risks
  • How to negotiate legally sound business deals
  • How to draft water-tight, jargon-free contracts
  • International Business litigation in practice and tactics used
  • Abitration as a growing method of business dispute resolution
  • Understanding individual, group and culture differences
