If you’re studying, working on, or interested in foreign and international business, labor, or regulatory matters, you should be familiar with Getting the Deal Through (GTDT). Purchased by the Cornell Law Library, and available for use by the entire Cornell community, GTDT is a current awareness service that provides guides to law and regulations in 48 practice areas and more than 150 countries worldwide.
GTDT's current awareness guides address numerous questions about law and regulation in countries around the world. For example, in the new guide Foreign Investment Review 2012, some of the questions answered are:
- What, in general terms, are your government’s policies and practices regarding oversight and review of foreign investment?
- What are the main laws that directly or indirectly regulate acquisitions and investments by foreign nationals on the basis of the national interest?
- How is a foreign investor or foreign investment defined in the applicable law?
- Are there special rules for investments made by foreign state-owned enterprises (SOEs) and sovereign wealth funds (SWFs)? How is an SOE or SWF defined?
These questions, and 19 more, are answered for each of 26 jurisdictions worldwide. GTDT also recently added 2012 guides to telecom, gas regulation, banking regulation, mergers and acquisitions, labor and employment, anti-corruption regulation, and merger control.
Cornell students, faculty, and staff may access GTDT here or through the Cornell University Library Catalog.
