The significance of such issues will be examined in the context of local courts (Chinese, Korean, etc.), foreign courts (English, etc.) and international arbitral tribunals. There will also be a practical session in which students will negotiate some choice of law clauses. The ultimate aim is to familiarize students with choice of law rules in Asian countries, possible choices of law and typical issues to consider.
