"The reality of business is global. Though laws are made at the national level, businesses act across borders and so must adapt to regulations and requirements that vary from place to place and time to time." -USC Gould Dean Andrew T. Guzman, an international law and economics scholar
Global business is regulated by numerous and varied legal regimes in an increasingly complex and chaotic patchwork of rules and practices. This raises critical questions about how to improve the regulation of international business activities. As one of the country's leading law schools, the USC Gould School of Law is the ideal home for CTLB to convene exceptional leaders, scholars and stakeholders, and inspire meaningful dialogue.
CTLB provides a scholarly home for the development of practical solutions for global businesses. The center facilitates expanded interdisciplinary collaboration, teaching and research, and brings together leading academic experts, practitioners and policymakers from across the country and the world.
The center's activities include:
- the production of scholarly research and policy proposals on transnational business law issues
- the convening of government officials, lawyers and business professionals for conversation and debate
- the training of a new generation of domestic and foreign attorneys and policymakers for leadership in global law and business
