This course has two main unique features: first, it combines key areas of international commercial law, making it a self-contained course for international business transactions; and second, it is enriched with psychological insights into legal practice. The course is designed to provide a good understanding of international commercial transactions in practice, as well as to equip you with key skills required to manage these transactions.

 

It includes a significant amount of practical exercise, and focuses on:

  • International Commercial Litigation, including Conflict of Laws/Private International Law
  • English commercial courts’ reasoning.
  • International Commercial Arbitration
  • Negotiations and Contracts
  • Key legal systems and organisations influencing international business law (UK & US Legal Systems, UNCITRAL, Commercial Finance Association etc.)
  • International Commercial Finance: Cross-border Asset-Based Lending
  • Organisational Psychology: Individuals, Groups and Cultures

 

You will learn what can go wrong in cross-border commercial transactions; about tactics used in litigation (when disputes arise); and how to use this knowledge to negotiate deals and prevent disputes. This knowledge is also applicable to domestic commercial transactions.

At the end of this course you should understand well the process of negotiating and managing international commercial transactions with minimal dispute risks.

 

Method: This course is usually taken together as a two-week course with the course: Advocacy (Courtroom & Arbitration) with Psychology.

 

Tutoring: 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.
