FOREIGN DIRECT INVESTMENT LAW IN ASIA
2012/2013, Semester 2
Modular Credits: LL4118 ( 4 ) / LL5118 ( 4 ) / LL6118 ( 4 )
Students will act as lawyers advising an international investor in a mock transaction in a developing Asian jurisdiction such as Vietnam, China or Indonesia. They must identify the legal risks for the investor in this developing environment and advise ways to mitigate such risks. Students will study some relevant local laws, draft contractual documents, analyse legal issues, give advice, negotiate with local partners and bring the deal to closure. Through this, students are expected to form an overview of the risks for an international investor in these developing Asian systems and ways to mitigate such risks. Focus will be on investment law, administrative law, conflict of laws, corporate law, contract law and arbitrations.
