Course on Business Law and Litigation in the United States and Internationally at the Law Faculty
From April 20 - 22 and April 27 - 29 the course on Business Law and Litigation in the United States and Internationally will be taught by Mr Timothy J. Heinson at the Law Faculty (Näituse 20, room K03, M-W from 16.15 - 19.00).
Registration for courses is open through the Study Information System (SIS): OIEO.04.091, 3 ECT. Course is in English.
The goal of this course is to introduce students to litigation and business law as practiced in the United States and internationally. Many of the subjects, including trademarks, trade dress, and copyright laws, as well as contract formation and remedies, have international significance beyond Estonia and the United States. Course lectures are designed to encourage interactive discussion using video clips and case studies to explore subject matter in an entertaining and informative format. The initial course work will review litigation techniques and the culmination will be a mock trial in which all students will participate.
