This course covers cross-border sales transactions between parties in different nations, and how both international treaties (such as the Vienna Convention) and domestic laws (such as the Uniform Commercial Code; UCC) impact the creation of international sales agreements and the resolution of sales disputes. The course will focus primarily on sales of goods, with an emphasis on the Vienna Convention, how the convention differs from the UCC, and the treaty?s real-world application. Issues covered will include offer, acceptance, formation, the statute of frauds, express and implied warranties, risk of loss, remedies, and damages. The course will also touch upon the cross-border sale of securities, and risk and compliance issues raised by such sales.
