Acquire key legal considerations for companies crossing borders.

Beschrijving

This summer school focuses on key legal considerations for companies crossing borders. This will be done from various perspectives including mergers & acquisitions, (aggressive) tax (planning), labour, intellectual property, insolvency, and international contracts. The summer school includes a case relating to companies involved in a cross-border take-over situation, to be solved by the students. The students' solutions are discussed from the aforementioned various perspectives.

The summer school will be taught by professors of the University of Antwerp, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (Spain) and Bocconi University (Italy).

The programme relates to companies crossing borders, and is composed of two parts:

Introductory lectures on key legal considerations for companies crossing borders; these lectures should enable the students to solve the case that will form the common theme throughout the summer school.Exercises on the basis of a case relating to companies involved in a cross-border take-over situation; to be solved by the students individually within two weeks as of the end of the lectures; students will have to submit a written report on questions relating to the case; students will be required to orally present their findings in an online discussion within one week after submission (tentative timing).

Target group: Students with a degree of Bachelor of Laws or Economics, or students who are enrolled in their third year. Students with similar competences (to be assessed on a case-by-case basis) are eligible for this summer school as well. Good command of English is required.
