This book was awarded the prestigious Certificate of Merit by the American Society of International Law. Cases and Materials on the Regulation of International Business and Economic Relations focuses primarily on international trade and direct foreign investment by using cases and problems. For each of these two topics, the book discusses the more private issues that affect the parties to a transaction, and then examines its broader international law context. This award-winning casebook reflects the current evolution of, and revolution in, transnational economic relations, including extensive exploration of the Uruguay Round Agreements establishing the World Trade Organization (WTO) and selective regional arrangements such as NAFTA, the European Union, and APEC.
Sparing use of materials from foreign legal systems illustrates the kinds of complications American lawyers are likely to encounter when they handle international transactions, and shows how decisions on questions of American law can either minimize or exacerbate those complications. These materials should impress upon students the need in such cases to seek advice from others expert in foreign law.
Cases and Materials on the Regulation of International Business and Economic Relations is appropriate for courses on International Business Transactions, International Economic Law, and International Trade.
