Syllabus for Global Commerce Law & Taxation - LLM125

Ms. Ana Penn and IBLS academic staff - Possible Faculty

Global Commerce Law & Taxation: Joe, who resides in San Diego, gives you a credit card number in payment for goods that you will ship to him from Denver.  You ship the goods and bill the credit card account.  And, baring any problem with the goods on arrival, the transaction is completed.   The cross border vendor must be aware of international shipping forms, transfer agents, customs and tariff administration just to ship goods to Montreal, where secure shipping links are in place, and courier services can handle most problems.  When a customer from Djibouti orders the same goods, it is not reasonable to assume that the same shipping and payment conventions will apply.  Djibouti is in an African Free Trade Zone, see the COMESA Clearing House for commercial bank clearing operations and debtor balances. The more appropriate way to do business worldwide is by the use of an electronic purse.  Even if you are shipping to California, do you know the local tax rates that apply? In California there are 58 counties, each with its own rate.  Expand that problem to include European Union tax regimens, and consider the OECD Model Income Tax Convention and your eyes begin to spin.  The students in this course will deal with the concepts of Cross Border transactions, banking and payment mechanisms, international e-commerce taxation, and online financial services.
