Course content, structure and pedagogical approach

The legal framework more and more influences the reality of cross-border business in the service sector. This course aims at providing students with the basic theoretical knowledge and practical skills useful for analysing the dynamics and consequences of this interaction, by focusing on legal aspects of international business activities and international service management.

The course provides a number of legal parameters and tools for students of international service management. In the first half of the course general EU internal market law, competition and public procurement law and data protection will be covered. In the second half we will focus instead in specific business areas and the public regulations applicable to them. Students will gain an understanding of the main elements of legal contract management and relate it to a real service firm. The relationship between theory and practice will be achieved by integrating the knowledge provided in the course to specific cases of real service corporations. Through its learning activities and assessment this course enhances competencies of problem solving, teamwork, writing up and presenting ideas, coordination of project activities and application of knowledge to practice.

Description of the teaching methods
The course material is delivered through i) pre-recorded lectures with a weekly slot for discussion of those on an online forum on canvas and ii) in class activities on synchronous online sessions. It is expected that students prepare before classes by reading relevant documents, articles and/or case studies as suggested in the reading schedule made available on canvas.
Feedback during the teaching period
This course will include regular in-class discussions and group activities. Feedback will be provided after these activities, allowing students to understand what they have done well or what areas to improve. In addition, in the penultimate session students will develop a business plan while in groups and feedback will be provided in the final week of the course.
Student workload
Lectures 36 hours
Preparation for class and exam 166 hours
Exam 4 hours
Expected literature

This course will not have a core textbook but selected sources (book chapters and journal articles) available via the CBS library will be linked to on Canvas.
