In recent years, there has been an increase in the use of standardised agreements by organisations. At the same time, exports and imports have increased dramatically all over the world. We no longer just do business with neighbouring countries with similar legal systems; we are increasingly working with more distant countries with very different rules and approaches.
This course focuses partially on how various norms are interpreted and can be used to avoid disputes and infringements of statutory law. We also look at the treaty for the International Sale of Goods and how international disputes are handled in court. The course is based on the participant’s own situation and other influencing factors and by doing exercises.
