A broad overview on the major topics of interest to those who find themselves in designing and managing international business relationships and to draft and negotiate international contracts, including the following issues:
- Business Law in the best emerging Countries;
- Contracting at the Age of Internet; INCOTERMS 2010: changes in the delivery terms and contracts for logistic services;

- Marketing contracts;
- Contract’s negotiations up to closing;

The ever increasing number of cross-border disputes and the growing appeal of alternative dispute resolution methods impose to practitioners and academics to have a clear and comprehensive view of the existing international and regional instruments of prevention of jurisdictional conflicts and recognition and enforcement of foreign judicial decisions as well as a deep knowledge of a.d.r. methods and procedures.
This module will therefore provide scholars with an overview on international and regional instruments on jurisdiction, recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters and a detailed analysis of the characteristics of international arbitration procedures and of other a.d.r. methods (e.g. commercial mediation, board mediation, etc.).
The course will also bring into focus some of the most critical and hot topics in the field of international commercial arbitration (e.g. interim and provisional measures, consolidation, extension of arbitral clause to non-signatories, class / mass arbitration, third party funding, etc.) and will provide a solid understanding of other, most recently introduced, methods of dispute resolution (dispute boards, adjudication boards, etc.).
