Course validation : To validate the course, the student is expected to pass : Weekly (or random) quiz + Presentation + Final comprehensive quiz during the last session. Pedagogical method : Students are expected to read before class the indicated chapters from the textbooks : International Finance : Theory and Policy, Pearson Global edition, 10th, 2015 and International Finance : a Practical Perspective, A. Buckley, Financial Times Press, Pearson, 2012. Therefore the students should expect to spend at least 2 hours to prepare each session. Consequently class is an opportunity for illustrating and discussing further the concepts presented in the readings and it is therefore interactive. Students will work in team (ideally 2 to 3 students) on oral presentations and mini-case studies. Presentations will mainly focus on the many current issues related to international ﬁnance from the Euro/$ parity to the opportunities of the Euro-area ﬁnancial markets after the Brexit. Course Description : The course of International Finance is designed to provide an understanding of International Finance. The recent crises underlined the complexity of the ﬁnancial system and the interconnectedness of the ﬁnancial markets in globalized word. The ﬁrst part of the course will focus on exchange rate and exchange rate regimes insisting on how the choice of exchange rate regime conditions the monetary policy. The second part of the course gives a more practical approach to exchange rates explaining exchange risk and related hedging strategies. The last part is dedicated to the ﬁnancial market places, in particular the supremacy of the US and the new opportunities for Euro-area market places after the Brexit. Required reading : Economics of Money, Banking and Financial Markets, Mishkin, F.S., Pearson, 2013..

Lectures will be informal, and searching, in grasping difﬁcult questions of law and morality as it relates to viable strategies of litigation and advocacy. In this way, this course will prepare students for advanced study and research in law and philosophy, as well as prepare students for practice in international and national litigation and advocacy. More, it will help students develop a facility in thinking, writing and arguing by way of international law. Assessments will be based on class participation, two mock trials, and a ﬁnal research project. MOCK TRIALS As this course seeks to strike a balanced note between law and lawyering in its theoretical and practical aspects, the class will involve mock trials in a way that will bring ﬂesh to the dynamic quality of international litigation. Depending on interests, the cases will involve timely and emotive matters as structured about claims before the International Court of Justice or International Criminal Court. Alternatively, they may involve claims of international import before the highest court of a given state, as the US Supreme Court, the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom, or France's Court of Cassation. LEGAL MEMORANDUM A legal memorandum, based on original research, will be the primary work of students. With a value beyond the classroom, the project, assumed among groups of students, will be written as a basis of future litigation. Generally, students are strongly encouraged to form research groups (of 4 peoplz, ideally) that 149
