MDH International Commercial Law, Lecture 1

Hi

First lecture is now completed. My reflection after the lecture is that it took a long time for the introduction of the course. On the other hand, it was a lot of information that was needed to be presented. There are 136 students signed up for the course and only 72 attended the Webinar and so far, late this evening, the Introduction movie has been showed 12 times. Where are all other students? It will be interesting to see how many students there will be later in the course.

It is important that you send me a mail, as soon possible, with names of students that you will work together with in the Group Assignment. Next week I will publish, on the home page, a list of court cases from ECJ that you can choose from and after that you can start to work on the Assignment.

Don’t forget to read the “Twitter Question” every Lecture day and try to answer the question based on the content in the Lecture.

Please write feedback on the first Lecture under this post. What was good and what was bad. It is more important, for you, that I get feedback during the course instead of after the course so I can make necessary changes during the course.

The Lecture schedule on MDH is now updated so all Lectures will start at 9.15 AM

Good night and take care 🙂

See you tomorrow
Best regards,
Krister

    Since we’re still at the beginning of the course, I wonder if you can give us some advice about how to read/study law. What is the best strategy to organize ourselves and succeed. It’s my first time studying these things and I find it a bit difficult.

  2. Anonym says:

    Really appreciate how you repeat and summarises what you have said in the lectures. It really makes it easier to follow!

  3. Anonym says:

    Hi, could you please enable subtitles (CC) for your videos on youtube like you did in Lecture 2 part 2 and part 3 for the future? Although it’s auto-generated it’s still quite helpful to read it while listening, thank you.

  4. Anonym says:

    It’s quite hard to follow the lectures slides in the book we got a lot of information (5 chapters from the book and 5 cases and a lot of the articles ) all that needs time to be studied or read at less, it’s a lot of rules that we need to understand. I am not a student who want to complain, I am really interested in learning more about international law, and I really appreciate your presenting of lectures but as a student, I want ways that make me understand the aim of each lecture, ways to motivate me to learn more, for example: it can be examples (not only cases) or questions or exercises.
    in this way we gonna get a little understanding of what happening around us.

        Hi,
        I dont agree with the students opinion. I feel like your lectures are very clear and suits the learning outcomes which you provided with other good information in the study guide.
        It is up to each student to take their responsibility and read the information given and prepare themselves for each course. And if this student still need help to understand, Im sure that there are plenty of other students that would be happy to provide som help as well.

    Hello!
    Does all the member states in EU need to agree to make a new regulation? As an example: The united patent court want their own law regarding patent, but since not all countries agreed to this, they were not able to create the regulation (according to lecture 2). So is an agreement necessary for all regulation decisions when it concerns all member states, or can EU pass regulations without agreements as well?
    Thanks in advance!

    • Krister says:

      Hi
      The voting rules have changed over the years and are different depending on what the regulation is about, See page 44 in EU Law book..
      We will come back to questions regarding EU Patent in Lecture 12 and 13.
      Best regards,

  6. Anonym says:

    Hi,
    you mentioned that we should check if the EU law or directive is still in force for our cases, what should we do if it’s not active and has been replaced with a new directive?

    • Krister says:

      Hi
      The you must find out if the directive have the same ”rule”, that is relevant in the case.
      Best regards,

  7. Anonym says:

    Reading the Article 18 from CISG, is that from the ”buyer/offeree” perspectives?

  8. Anonym says:

    Hi,
    I am having a hard time coming up with and explanation for the twitter question regarding an independent agency, is there a possibility you could go over a clear explantation?

    Thank you!

    • Krister says:

      Hi
      The whole idea with the Twitter questions is that you should be able to figure out the answer with the help of the Lectures. You should be able to explain what an agency is, look at the movie Lecture 4 part 2.

      The word “independent” is from the “Third Party” point of view. The opposite, “dependent” means that “Third Party” must trust the information from the Agent.

      Best regards,
      Krister

  9. Anonym says:

    Could you give an example of when the subsidiarity principle comes to use?

  10. Xing says:

    When does one know when an independent agency is applied and when an dependent agency is applied.

    For example. If I go as an agency and buy a car for 210 000 when I the limit is 200 000 and then the principal calls the third party and says ”Hey, the deal is off”. If it’s an independent agency and the third party had good faith then it’s not off but if it’s an dependent agency then the deal is off either way right? So when does one know when the rules for a dependent or independent agency is applied?

  11. Anonym says:

    Hi, for the assignment, how do we check if a treaty is still in force?

  13. Anonym says:

    We have some questions in regards to the assignment: Would it be possible that you clarify a little bit more in detail what is expected from us for each grading and post in canvas? Does the level of complexity of the case matter for the grading? Does it matter how many articles the case is connected to?
    Also it would be helpful to later have some supervision times with you to get some guidance, would that be possible?

    • Krister says:

      Hi

      I gave answer to this question in the begining of Lecture 8 part 1, please see the movie on homepage.
      On course homepage you will find a grading template.

  15. Anonym says:

    Hi, is it possible to pick CISG cases that are not in the book ?

  16. Anonym says:

    Hello,
    We have hard time to understand what is needed for the Analysis part in the assignment. Is it our opinion about the importance of the Case, if we agree on the court’s decision or what exactly? Would you have an example from an old assignment or could you please explain this a little bit more?
    Thank you for your help.

  17. Anonym says:

    Hi, regarding references for the assignment do we need to reference where we got the Articles, Directives etc from, or is it enough to mention the full directive or Article without the source/publication?

  18. Anonym says:

    Hi. Regarding the assignment, do we have to describe the legal issues by describing the plaintiff and defendant claims and counter claims, or we can just describe with our own words the main legal issues and then in the court ruling and assignment take a closer look at them in relationship with the litigants claims and the court ruling legal basis?

  19. Anonym says:

    What happens then when the infringement of copyright has international connotation with different countries and national laws conflicting with each other?

  20. Anonym says:

    Regarding personal pictures, specially the case in which one’s kids are involved, what rights apply to them?

  21. Anonym says:

    Regarding article 6 bis, how does moral rights relates with the increasing wave of famous people ”authoring” books the have never wrote? For example Michelle Obama and the Trumps

  22. Anonym says:

    Hi , which cases in the book are not aloud to be used?
