INTERNATIONAL LAW Suggested Additional Assignments Research, Read and Write: WTO Cases Using newspapers and/or the Internet, students should find a recent World Trade Organization (WTO) case, and write a short paper that explains: (1) Which nations were the parties? (2) What was the trade issues involved? (3) What were the respective arguments for the two countries? (4) What was the resolution of the case? (5) Do the students agree or disagree with the decision, and why? Read, Research, and Write: This assignment can be either individual writing assignments, or collaborative class projects, with students in groups doing one of the three scenarios, presenting orally their findings to the class, and turning in their commentary for grading and comment from the instructor. A) Students should locate the Arms Export Control Act (AECA). The students should read the provisions and note sections they consider key. They should retain a copy in the PRJ for easy access in this lesson and others later in the course. Students should write a brief summary of the history, key provisions, and recent revisions to the Act. They should discuss the purpose and their position as to the efficacy of the Act, and any recommendations to enhance the utility and enforcement. B) Students should locate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). The students should read the provisions and note key sections. They should retain a copy in the PRJ for easy access in this lesson and others later in the course. Students should write a brief summary of the history, key provisions, and recent revisions to the Act. They should discuss the purpose and their position as to the efficacy of the Act, and any recommendations to enhance the utility and enforcement. C) Students should locate the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CSIG). The students should read the provisions and note sections they consider key. They should retain a copy in the PRJ for easy access in this lesson and others later in the course. Students should be encouraged to write a brief summary of the history, key provisions, and recent revisions to the Act. They should discuss the purpose and their position as to the efficacy of the Act, and any recommendations to enhance the utility and enforcement. Pair Project: Divide class into two sections, one of which should read United States vs. Mandel , 696 F. Supp 505, 1988 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 10781 (E.D. Cal. 1988), and the other U.S. vs. Reyes , 270 F.3d 1158, 2001 U.S. App. LEXIS 24031 7 (Circuit Court of Appeals 2001) Ethics: The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act We have found that the Lugubria Convention Center exercise gives students a good chance to apply the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) to a typical contemporary situation. The exer cise offers an excellent chance to apply Chapter Ethics checklist. The checklist question “Is it legal?” of course raises the FCPA issues, so the two points go handily together. 99
