The IBL&DR Certificate program was developed working with practicing international lawyers with years of experience in cross-border business transactions and the disputes that arise out of them.
The IBL&DR Certificate will provide the busy working professional with a practical working understanding of all aspects of cross-border business transactions, from
- establishing business relationships in new jurisdictions
- understanding and analyzing risks in doing business
- negotiating key substantive points, including in key specialty areas like intellectual property, investment and trade, and tax
- providing the framework for resolving disagreements that may arise between the parties; and actually litigating or arbitrating such disputes
The IBL&DR Certificate provides important knowledge and practical experience that is not usually available other than with years of work in the field. After completing the IBL & DR Certificate, you will have a solid working knowledge of the ins and outs of cross-border business transactions, a roadmap of the potential pitfalls and most likely areas where disputes will arise, and the framework for how to either avoid those issues, or work towards resolving them if a formal dispute arises.
