International Project Finance

This course will survey and provide a basic working understanding of the typical issues, documentation and techniques used in project and infrastructure financing transactions in the international context, with an emphasis on emerging markets. The course also will provide students with a realistic look at the challenges of practicing lawyers in this area, ranging from understanding of the theory of risk allocation issues behind such transactions, to the implementation of this theory through negotiating, documenting and implementing solutions. Emphasis will be placed on practical skills. Various types of debt and equity capital will be discussed, as well as examination of the role of international entities, export credit agencies, governments and government-affiliates in the sector. Case studies involving typical sectors of activity, such as power, oil and gas, mining, telecom and other industries, will be used to examine actual transactions that have addressed relevant issues.
