This text, completely updated from the Second Edition, provides students and practitioners of international business law with a clear “story line” that addresses key questions facing international lawyers as they advise clients on a broad range of business issues—especially those of a transactional character. The book's first two chapters are aimed at “orienteering”, to explain (1) where international business law fits within the larger context of international law, (2) what main legal traditions practitioners will face in working with clients and counsel from other cultures, and (3) what sources of assistance are available to facilitate that work (e.g., local counsel, translators, etc.). Chapters 3 to 6 then march the reader through a variety of critical issues on contract drafting, standard terms (e.g., Incoterms), documentary sales transactions, electronic commerce, and more. Chapters 7 and 8 shift the focus away from sales of goods and toward two related forms of international business that stand partway between commerce and investment—namely, licensing of production abroad and international franchising. Then, in Chapters 9, 10, and 11, the book turns to foreign direct investment. Again, the approach is heavily practice-oriented. The book then closes, in Chapters 12 and 13, with a series of “cross-cutting issues” that apply to all forms of international business—including dispute resolution, corrupt practices, wire transfers, anti-competition rules, and the like.This structure to the text of Global Business Law reflects the typical progression of interest and involvement by business organizations in the world of commerce, licensing, and investment. That structure, combined with a practice-oriented approach (giving attention to policy and regulatory matters only to the extent that they bear directly on the practice of international business law), yields a text that can be used not only for students wishing to gain a close familiarity with the subject for the first time, but also for practitioners who want clear answers and guidance, not just questions and readings. Consistent with that approach, the text comes with a set of appendices providing key documentary materials, such as the Vienna Sales Convention, the Uniform Customs and Practice, and a range of treaties, model laws, national legislation, and other legal building blocks. In order to help bring these to life, the text provides helpful chapter overviews, study questions to focus attention on principal points, a streamlined narrative, and extensive illustrations and sample forms.

This book provides comprehensive and, above all, business focused guidance on the fundamentals of business law and how they should be integrated into ethical and effective business decisions. It concentrates on legal principles and thereby is able to articulate the impact of global business law and its international applications providing a comprehensive overview of the legal and ethical principles which both facilitate and regulate corporate business. This is an ambitious undertaking, yet arguably no more ambitious than the projects undertaken by global business leaders making business decisions around the world. The author combines the expertise of a long-term blue chip law background with the insights of an experienced business educator. Law and Ethics in Global Business is both a comprehensive course book for MBA study and an invaluable business reference source for any executive involved in global business.

International business transactions are heavily influenced by culture,practice and rule. The pursuit of business relationships within nation-states can be subject to differences in the generation of norms and the processing of disputes, but these conflicts are magnified many times over in cross-border transactions where nation-state control and support is weak or absent. This book seeks different explanations of the ways in which business people and their legal advisers try to minimise the effect of these magnified difficulties. At the outset the editors suggest four sources through which the international business community might be considered to have supplemented nation-state conflict prevention and dispute resolution institutions-an international legal order; the development of a private normative order based on common business practices (denominated the lex mercatoria); through the efforts and work product of internationalised law firms, and by means of extensive, thick personal relationships often referred to by their Chinese term guanxi. Since most explanations are dominated by North American and European legal scholarship and practice, a second concern of this book is to open up the discussion to competing explanatory frameworks. Specifically, it develops the notion that global legal convergence may not be the immediate, inevitable result of increased global economic interaction. Rather, less formal mechanisms for achieving normative understanding and predictability in business dealings may also flourish.

Across an amazing sweep of the critical areas of business regulation - from contract, intellectual property and corporations law, to trade, telecommunications, labour standards, drugs, food, transport and environment - this book confronts the question of how the regulation of business has shifted from national to global institutions. Based on interviews with 500 international leaders in business and government, this book examines the role played by global institutions such as the WTO, the OECD, IMF, Moody's and the World Bank, as well as various NGOs and significant individuals. The authors argue that effective and decent global regulation depends on the determination of individuals to engage with powerful agendas and decision-making bodies that would otherwise be dominated by concentrated economic interests. This book will become a standard reference for readers in business, law, politics and international relations.

The study of Law forms a component of many undergraduate and postgraduate programs. Its inclusion does not aim to equip business practitioners with skill and expertise to render professional legal advice unnecessary, but more to provide a legal framework of reference in which both strategic and more immediate business issues can be placed. Equipping managers with a basic understanding of how law impacts upon business activity can help them avoid legal pitfalls in the first place or at least identify potential problems at an early stage, to avoid inconvenience and cost. International business can present problems that are not present in a purely domestic transaction. Any law component in a management program should embrace it and by doing so the business practitioner can be familiarized with the wider picture in which modern business, aided by technological development, is increasingly practiced.

This Handbook on Global Business Law is designed to serve two aims. First, and most importantly, it provides a wide variety of statutory, treaty, and other material to be studied in connection with the text entitled Global Business Law. Second, this Handbook also speaks to practitioners. The materials gathered here include what the author regards as some of the most important materials that a practitioner should have at his or her fingertips as questions arise in practice regarding international business transactions.For both of these purposes?to help students in their learning of global business law and to help practitioners and their clients in conducting transactions?the author has tried to provide not only the text of the materials themselves, whether they are statutes or treaties or guidelines or sample forms, but also explanatory notes. Many documents used in international business, and appearing in this Handbook, do not make it obvious on their face just what they are and why they matter. The author has tried to provide this information in a ?Note? at the beginning of each document in the Handbook. In addition, the author has provided an introductory explanation at the beginning of each of the six Sections into which this Handbook is divided.

In today's society, the foreground of deliberation-in politics, legislation, judicial decisions, even war is increasingly experienced by citizens as a mask for the working out of norms and institutions the precise nature of which eludes us. We are accustomed to looking behind every news item, often feeling that the real decisions are made by other people than those who seem to be in power, or that events are merely driven by facts on the ground or unconscious motives. To consider global business activity, and especially employment issues, in this experiential context is a daring and provocative challenge one which was taken up in August 2004 under the sponsorship of the Department of Business Law at Lund University. This remarkable book presents a rich sampling of what was said at that unique symposium among a group of notable authorities in law, business, and international relations. The seventeen authors whose contributions appear in this book bring their lucid perspectives to bear on the vital and complex issues that emerge from the contemplation of the territory where the rule of law encounters global business interests. These perspectives encompass such factors as the following: the role of the expert; global extension of the nation-state model; the effect of development aid on legal systems in developing countries; WTO rules and dispute settlement; the most favoured nation (MFN) principle; efforts to harmonise contract law; international taxation; multinational corporate behaviour; the search for fair labour standards; the clash of economic law and labour law; corporate social responsibility; and alternative dispute resolution in international trade. Underlying all the essays is the insight that, although there is no established global law and no global law-giver, yet there is no national law that is not deeply affected by the globalisation of markets. Collectively, these authors provide a deeper and truer vision of the real global legal regime that is rapidly taking shape. The powerful impetus this book provides toward an understanding of actually developing global governance and global justice will be of great value to all who wish to see a balance struck among economic, environmental, and social interests in our world.

This volume establishes a theoretical framework for exploring the role of host state legal systems (courts and bureaucracies) in mediating relations between foreign investment, civil society and government actors. It then demonstrates the application of that framework in the context of the south Indian city of Bengaluru (formerly Bangalore). Drawing on the 'law-and-community' approach of Roger Cotterrell, the volume identifies three mechanisms through which law might, in theory, ensure that social relations are productive: by expressing any mutual trust which may hold actors together, by ensuring that actors participate fully in social life and by coordinating the differences that hold actors apart. Empirical data reveals that each of these legal mechanisms is at work in Bengaluru. However, their operation is limited and skewed by the extent to which actors use, abuse and/or avoid them. Furthermore, these legal mechanisms are being eroded as a direct result of the World Bank's 'investment climate' discourse, which privileges the interests and values of foreign investors over those of other actors.

The rich field of urban law has thus far lacked a holistic and concerted scholarly focus on comparative and global perspectives. This work offers new inroads into the global and comparative streams within urban law by presenting emerging frameworks and approaches to topics ranging from urban housing and land use to legal informality and consumer financial protection. The volume brings together a group of international urban legal scholars to highlight emergent global, interdisciplinary perspectives within the field of urban law, particularly as they have import for comparative legal analysis. The book presents a timely addition to the literature given the urgent legal issues that continue to surface in an age of rapid urbanization and globalization.
