International Business Law & Negotiations at TAU Law
TAU Law hosts a unique course, structured around a simulated negotiation exercise in which students from Northwestern Law School and TAU Law represent either an African agricultural production company or a U.S.pharmaceutical company. The two companies are interested in working together to exploit a new technology.
Participants are 12 LL.B students from TAU Law, and 10 J.D. students from Northwestern Law School. The purpose of the course is to provide students with an opportunity to gain insight into the dynamics of negotiating and structuring international business transactions, to learn about the role that lawyers and law play in these negotiations, and to give students experience in drafting communications and actual negotiations. Students also learn about the legal and business issues that arise in joint ventures, supply agreements, and licensing agreements. This course also gives participants the opportunity to work across cultures with students from a different country.
