Choose a legal issue that was the subject of a lecture/ reading (for example, contracts, intellectual property, negligence, or private international law), and prepare a 1,000-2,000 word research paper that examines its practical impact on a multinational business (for example, an international contract law lawsuit; the valuation of the intellectual property portfolio of a pharma giant; an employment law dispute over workplace discrimination).
Ensure you include discussion of the following required elements:
Your thesis: introduce and close your paper with an insightful conclusion you have reached based on your research.
Legal context: state clearly which specific legal issue you will discuss (for example, contracts, workplace discrimination, trade law, or immigration).
Business relevance: the business context in which you will discuss this issue (for example, a specific lawsuit; a decision by a judicial body such as the World Trade Organization; or a legal campaign by a civil society group such as Human Rights Watch, Global March Against Child Labor, or the World Wide Fund for Nature).
Business analysis of the legal issues involved: revenues affected, costs from the legal action and business outcome.
Other business issues: for example, public relations concerns, impact on employees, community impact in the places where the company operates, and any other issues you think relevant.
Continuing challenges: what ongoing issues does your chosen company face and what potential solutions can you identify?
