Week 1
(June 10-13, 2019)

Global Litigation: The American Perspective (1 Credit)
Instructor: Michael Dale, Nova

American companies and individuals are increasingly involved in international commercial and private disputes. The course, with particular emphasis on European based parties, will focus on five litigation topics: jurisdiction, pretrial matters, alternative dispute resolution settings, choice of law, and international treaties and conventions.

Week 2 
(June 17-20, 2019)

The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)  (1 Credit)
Instructor: Timothy Kaye, Stetson

The course will explain the requirements of the GDPR, as well as why, although its first Article says that it “lays down rules relating to the protection of natural persons [in the EU] with regard to the processing of personal data and rules relating to the free movement of personal data,” the GDPR has great significance for businesses and organizations throughout the world, including the USA.

Week 3
(June 24-27, 2019)

International Data Privacy Under the New GDPR (1 credit)
Instructor: Allyson Haynes Stuart, Charleston

This course provides a historical and comparative view of global data privacy – the right of individuals to control their personal information. While the United States has based its enforcement of data privacy primarily on a contract/breach of promise model enforced by the Federal Trade Commission, the European Union’s sweeping new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which took effect in May 2018, has more specific and far-reaching requirements for gathering, using, storing, and sharing information. Students will learn the specifics of the GDPR and its international reach and will study cases like the Cambridge Analytica debacle to understand how technology can both help and harm consumer privacy.

Week 4
(July 1-4, 2019)

International and Comparative Competition Law  (1 credit)
Instructor: Mark Bauer, Stetson

Competition Law, called “Antitrust” in the United States, is the legal doctrine concerning monopolies, price fixing, and the damage to competition that can result from large corporate mergers. Few large mergers in the world today are restricted to just one nation. For international business to exist, nations are forced to cooperate in the enforcement of competition laws.

This course will consider the competition laws of the United States, the European Union, and China, the world’s most powerful business competition regulators, as well as the competition regimes in other countries. Students will learn about the concepts of soft and hard convergence in international law, how treaties and cooperation agreements work together to create a system of global enforcement of competition laws, and how the United Nations is working to unify all competition regulators.
