Professor Mousseron (Credits: 2)
This course will be divided into two parts:
The first one will present how the European legislation traditionally handles global business issues such as product liability and free circulation of goods or services.
In order to have a more complete view of the rules applicable to global businesses in Europe, a second part of the course will examine how transnational rules complement the European and national legislations. Business law does not only consist of written rules enacted by public authorities; it also contains informal unwritten rules as well as private norms which are sometimes just as important as written ones. These transnational rules sometimes consist of standards, best practices and usages which play a more active role particularly in areas where written national statutes cannot give a satisfactory solution.

Professor Germain (Credits: 1)
This course introduces U.S. students to sources of French and European Union law and institutions, and all students to international and foreign law sources. It analyzes some of the differences between the common law and the civil law traditions. It identifies the challenges of global legal research, and provides strategies to overcome them. Students will discuss some of the procedural and substantive legal issues at stake when advising a client on a foreign and international law issue, and how to start the research on a problem. The course encourages class engagement and critical thinking about legal resources.
