Understand the powers and functions of the rulemaking and enforcement actions taken by federal and  state regulatory agencies.   3. Recognize some of the most important legal issues which affect and impact international business,  appreciate cultural and national differences, and understand the structure and role of key organizations  involved in international business. 4.
