Course Details

International Investment

This seminar will examine the law of investor-State dispute resolution. We will focus on the protection of international investment under treaty regimes such as NAFTA and bilateral investment treaties (BITs), as well as on customary international law that protects investors from expropriation, denials of fair and equitable treatment, and discrimination on the basis of nationality. The essence of the course is the protection of international firms in their foreign investments, but also the impact of regulatory or other public policy requirements, and the various economic and political conflicts that may arise in this field. Grading for the course will be based on written assignments and class participation.
