The primary objectives of the course are as follows:
1.To introduce participants to the legal aspects of cross-border business transactions.
2.Familiarize participants with the international laws and conventions that govern this unique area of law;
3.Gain an understanding of case law analysis, through the detailed discussion of judicial decisions from prominent legal systems of the world on Cross- Border Business Law and Practice.
4.Enable participants to consider critically the effectiveness of the current legal context in achieving the desired policy objectives
5.Every legal dispute is linked to a legal system. There is no such thing as an international law. International laws are laws devised by organisations and not a legal system or domestic government. They take on the force of law only when ratified by parliament and hence become part of domestic law.
6. Importance of contract- The contract is the governing law of the parties; domestic law is only used to fill the gaps; only mandatory laws can overrule a contractual clause; what law then is applicable if the parties live in different countries’?
