U.S. businesses, including small businesses, increasingly strive to expand beyond national borders and to fend off foreign competition at home. Many companies operate across the frontiers of nation-states. Transacting business across national borders and participating in a global economy give rise to a host of legal issues that do not occur in purely domestic business transactions. This course is designed to introduce the student to some of the principles, laws, and organizations impacting international business transactions. Its primary goal is to develop in the student an appreciation for, and understanding of, the legal and ethical issues inherent in doing business across borders.
