This course will focus on drafting international commercial contracts and various clauses in such contracts. The course will emphasize drafting, discussion of provisions drafted, building awareness of diverse drafting influences, the effects of these pre-drafting considerations on drafting, and review and discussion of selected international contracts and clauses currently in use. The pre-drafting considerations include the impact of selected international conventions, selected local-impact foreign laws, and selected U.S. laws on your drafting exercises. Students will also learn about various other pre-drafting influences on international contract drafting; gain an understanding of drafting options in selected situations; absorb many other drafting insights; and practice making thoughtful drafting decisions.
