The LL.M. program offers a sound further education in the design of international contracts as well as the marketing of technology through license agreements. The course participants should be enabled to independently solve problems that arise in international treaty practice and technology transfer.

The first part of the specialization course focuses on the design of international contracts. The basics include international private law issues such as choice of law, CISG, and alternative forms of dispute resolution. In addition, the course addresses the hedging performance from the customer's perspective, the assurance of payment entitlements, and contract enforceability in different international contexts. An overview of the measures that enable companies of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) obligations are also essential. The module Technology Transfer first explains how technology is protected by patent, copyright, design, trademark, and know-how protection. In the second part of this module, the focus is on the commercialization of technology through licensing agreements. The LL.M. International Business Transactions and Technology Transfer focuses on the aspects of Swiss, European, American, and International Law.
