Law in International Business Instructor at UCLA Extension

UCLA Extension


Mid Level

Los Angeles, CA, USA

$53 - $75

11 Jan → 10 Feb

Job Description

This course introduces international business law through an examination of "real world" case studies and contemporary legal problems via a nontechnical approach to the law. Topics include legal rules, contracts, international arbitration, and the impact of nationalism and cultural attitudes on law and international affairs; regulation of international trade; protection of intellectual property, trademarks, and patents; and the legal ramifications of regional and economically integrated trade organizations, including the World Trade Organization and other multinational trade bodies.

Instructors teach students to understand the fundamentals, technical aspects, and concepts of the subject matter. More importantly they prepare students to utilize this understanding practically in the workforce. In addition to teaching proficiency in technical matters, instructors utilize case studies and real life examples wherever possible to help students take their understanding from the pages of the textbook into the work of the real world.

To accomplish this, instructors foster a collaborative, inclusive learning environment developed to support the success of all UCLA Extension students coming from a wide range of educational, personal, and professional backgrounds.
