Direito Internacional Econômico (International Economic Law), LLB. In Law / 3rd year / FGV

Brazil - 1 August 2017

Trade topics: International Trade Law, Trade Finance

The International Economic Law course is a hybrid course of public and private elements, combining the classic tripod analysis of the regulation of the inter-state economic system - monetary, financial and commercial systems - with self-regulation and exclusive relationships between private agents (eg contracts) in transnational legal proceedings. The course structure develops from real situations-problems that analyze issues related to Brazil and involve public and private actors. These three problem situations are oriented around three thematic axes: international economic contracts, regulation of foreign investments and regulation of international trade. In addition to these problem situations, there is a fourth thematic axis in which the international institutional structures created in the post-World War II period are studied for the international economic system - which aggregates the monetary and financial systems. The course emphasizes the "continuum" interaction between international and domestic regulation and the influence of this relationship on the design of national and international institutions. In this sense, there is an articulation between elements of the Law, with the concepts and contexts of Economy and Politics. Under the concept of "Global Law", of the Institutional Development Program of the DIREITO GV, the course combines contextual analysis with the legal technique and focuses, in addition to content points, on the skills and competencies for student training in the area.
