Negotiating a Joint Venture in China
Professor Nestor Gounaris
J.D. Seminar 1207 | 1 credit hours
Through a simulation oriented course, students will be exposed to recent economic history of the People’s Republic of China, foreign direct investment law of China, and negotiating norms of US and Chinese investors. These various knowledge sets will be brought together as each participant takes on the role of either a Chinese investor or a US investor, negotiating the terms of a China-based joint venture and ultimately reporting back to their respective board of directors. In addition to the negotiations exercises, the course requires a brief quality-driven paper on any number of topics relating to China as an economic actor on the world stage.
This course will meet for one weekend only, 10:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., on the following dates in Fall 2015: 10/2, 10/3, and 10/4.
