International Commercial Law

Introduction

International Commercial Law - Research Guide International Law

International commercial law is a body of applicable rules, principles and customary practices that govern cross-border commercial activities of private parties. As such, international commercial law is part of private international law, while its international trade law counterpart, governing the trade relations between States, is part of international economic law, which is a branch of public international law. As rules, principles and customary practices applicable to cross-border transactions differ among cultures, there is a strong tendency for harmonization and unification of these.

    Schaffer, R., F. Agusti and L.J. Dhooge, International business law and its environment, Mason, South-Western, 2014
    Today most people agree that no business is purely domestic and that even the smallest local firms are affected by global competition and world events. This book is designed to deliver comprehensive, yet accessible, coverage of the legal implications and ramifications of doing business internationally, along with the related cultural, political, economic, and ethical issues faced by global business managers. Focusing on trade, the licensing of intellectual property, and foreign direct investment, the authors present the three major forms of doing business in a foreign country through real-world examples, precedent-setting cases, managerial implications, and ethical considerations. From the legal relationship between parties in an international business transaction to managing risk to learning the special challenges of doing business in emerging economies, the 9th Edition helps students understand the most common practices and critical issues in global business law.
