This course develops students' practical skills in contract drafting while they study substantive international sales law. International business lawyers not only need to know the law, they also need to develop contract drafting and negotiation skills. Through a series of simulations and team-based projects, students will negotiate and draft hypothetical transactions using international sales law. We will study the theory, doctrine and practice of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) and compare key aspects of the CISG to the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) Article 2. Students will learn to balance risk reduction and flexibility with the constraints of international sales law.
