„Gaining a general understanding of relevant international organizations, jurisdictions, and international civil law is key in preventing misunderstandings with any foreign trade partner. Thus, the module's primary aim will be to understand international conventions and institutions relevant to international trade. The focus of the elective module LAW will be on practical and useful regulations, clauses and suggestions applicable to the everyday professional lives of managers, regardless of whether they work in a common- or civil-law environment.“
