Latin American Business Law

This course focuses on the regulation of business in Latin America and the most important differences between the Civil Law tradition and the Common Law. The course exposes the students to some of the main issues that may arise in the practice of law dealing with Latin America. Emphasis is placed on the appropriate choice of a business entity by an American investor and in the analysis and comparison of the laws of business associations and securities regulation applicable in Latin America and in the United States. Important cultural, historical and political traits of the region will be highlighted, as they are extremely influential in the transactions of business and international legal relations.
