Course Description:
NOTE: This is a compressed class meeting on Tuesdays and Thursdays for 4 hours per week through April 1, 2010.

This course will explore the laws applicable to international contractual relations, focusing heavily on the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. Along the way, we will touch on a few other topics, such as choice of law rules, a comparison of selected UCC with CISG provisions, and a comparison of the contract law of selected foreign nations with the UCC and the law of contracts in the United States. We will end the course with an examination of international arbitration as a means of dispute resolution. The final grade will be based primarily on a final exam and secondarily on periodic quizzes. The final exam will not be scheduled early.
