Comparative Corporate Law


Business & Tax Law, International Law

In an increasingly globalized world, corporate law is becoming international. Companies operate across borders, and lawyers are expected to understand foreign systems. This seminar provides both an introduction to comparative law in the corporate context and an opportunity for each student to compare U.S. corporate law with the corporate law of the student's home country or another country of the student’s choice. Each week, each student will write a one‐page paper comparing U.S. law to the law of the student’s chosen country with regard to the topic of the week’s assignment.  Permission of the instructor is required to enroll.  Business Associations or the equivalent is a prerequisite.
