Gain a solid understanding of the Australian legal system and how it impacts on business and commercial transactions. You'll learn about the law relating to contract, torts, corporations, agency, partnership, fiduciary obligations, taxation, banking, secured transactions, e-commerce, intellectual property, consumer protection and international commercial law.
