The 12th Edition of this popular problem-oriented coursebook introduces law students to the conduct of business in the world community. Problems on international contracting, financing, trade regulation, licensing and technology transfers, foreign investment, and international business dispute resolution are included. The book provides current in-depth examination of issues clients are likely to face, such as contracting for sales across borders, financing international transactions, defending against import competition, expanding exports and overseas markets, investing abroad and dealing with NAFTA, the WTO, and other trade agreements. The coursebook is designed to survey a wide range of laws involving trade, licensing and investment, and explore how issues and problems are addressed by lawyers as problem solvers.

The below Power Point presentations contain visual representations of a variety of international business transactions covered in the master International Business Transactions coursebook and in IBT: Contracting Across Borders. Through the use of illustrations, charts, and movement, the presentations show how the parties are situated as well as how the transactions typically unfold. The Power Points cover a wide variety of subjects, including the basic IBT sales transaction, the "battle of the forms," commercial terms and bills of lading, documentary sales transactions, letters of credit, and international project financing.

The entire course book has been re-shaped by limiting the amount of material assigned per problem. Coverage of all areas has been updated, notably entirely new form documents in the Introductory Problem, CISG developments, WTO, EU and NAFTA changes , FCPA enforcement, investment and mergers and acquisitions in Europe, and high-tech transfers, along with extensive revisions of the coverage of international business dispute settlement. A new problem on international commercial arbitration has been added, and the safeguards (escape clause) problem has been removed.
