1 OVERVIEW INTERNATIONAL COMMERICAL TRANSACTIONS College of Law University of Saskatchewan STRUCTURE AND GOALS OF THE COURSE The issues examined in this course arise in the context of private commercial relationships that have interjurisdictional features. Some of these relationships involve parties or performance in other provinces of Canada. However, the great bulk of them will be international; they involve legal relations between persons in Canada and persons in other countries. What distinguishes all international transactions from domestic transactions is that the law applicable to the various aspects of international transactions and their performance is not entirely domestic Saskatchewan or Canadian law. Aspects of the relationship may be governed by the national law of another jurisdiction or by transnational commercial law in one form or the other. The goal of the course is to permit students to (i) examine many of the legal issues that arise as a result of one of the parties to a contract of sale or the performance of the contract being in another jurisdiction; and (ii) to identify and apply the law and structures that address these issues. While the great bulk of the course material relates to sales of goods and financing of such sales, many of the principles and approach examined in the course apply to other types of transactions such as sales of services and project performance and financing. The course has two integrated features. The first is class discussion of the full range of nation and transnational (private international law) law applicable to relationships described in the preceding paragraph. Most of the materials (other than those that are available on the internet) can be accessed by course participants through the University on-line system PAWS that hosts the Blackboard program. In the second part of the course - the Negotiation Exercise-, participants are given the opportunity to apply in the context of scenarios the information addressed in the first part. Assessment of the performance of participants in the course ise on the basis of an openbook examination (75%) and the preparation of the relevant documents and associated brief of law involving a specific international sales transaction and/or related financing transaction (25%).

5 PART 2 NEGOTIATION EXERCISE The negotiation assignments represent 25% of the final grade in the course. Each participant is marked on her or his individual contribution to the negotiations as displayed in the contracts and the report to his or her client (described below). The class participants are placed in groups of two or three student negotiators. A different scenario is given to each group. A scenario involves a hypothetical set of transactions involving a Saskatchewan party, a foreign party and, in most cases, a financing organization. In each group, one student represents the seller (or equivalent) a second, the buyer (or equivalent) and, where appropriate, the third the financing organization. Each group of negotiators will negotiate the relevant contracts (sales contract and financing contract). Each negotiator will assume the role of a solicitor who negotiates the legal terms of the contracts and related undertakings as representative of his or her client. (You must assume that, throughout the negotiation process you are in constant contact with your client). The negotiators will prepare basic contracts and explain to their clients what other contractual arrangement will have to be made (e.g., shipping). The representative of the financing agency will work with the representatives of the seller and or buyer to shape the financing contract arrangements and prepare the relevant financing documentation. The contracts must reflect the applicable national or transnational law and address all of the relevant factors that have legal significance in the most efficient and effective way to accomplish the parties goals. In so doing, each negotiator must anticipate legal problems that could arise and try to build in protection against loss, inconvenience or extra cost to his or her client should one or more of the problems arise. A negotiator should proceed on the assumption that a dispute leading to judicial intervention (court or arbitrator) could well occur. The form contracts should contain all of the crucial clauses arising out the negotiation. There is no need to include the boiler plate found in most precedents. Crucial clauses are those that are particularly important in the context of the transaction. Each negotiator will prepare a short electronic report to her or his client in which the crucial clauses of the contracts (and associated factors) are identified and their legal significance explained. A copy of it along with the negotiated contracts is made available to the instructor. A negotiator who gave concessions in the negotiation will explain the reason the concessions were given and the risk (if any) that the concessions entail. Participants can gain most of the needed information and guidance from the Course Materials published in Blackboard. However, it will be necessary to access other sources

6 (e.g., library and webpages) to get precedent forms of contracts and to address matters that are of particular relevance to the type of contracts or type of property involved. I am willing to discuss your assignment with you should you encounter matters which create significant problems. In particular, there may be a few technical issues associated with the financing arrangements with respect to which you might need guidance. Some of the negotiated arrangements will be presented to the class. (Time will likely not permit presentation of all of them). The number of presentations will be determined by the amount of class time available. Electronic copies of the written explanations (along with the contract and all related documents) will be presented to all members of the class.
