International Trade Law (5041LAW)

Globalisation has created a need for lawyers to understand the roles of domestic and transnational legal regulation in international trade. This course aims to develop students' skills in dealing with complex international commercial agreements, and the resolution of international commercial disputes. This course covers the following important areas of international commercial law: international business transactions and finance; key international trade organisations; the role of insurance in international trade; and key frameworks relating to the international sale of goods (with a focus on the Vienna Convention). This subject also provides an introduction to transnational dispute resolution mechanisms. The course is offered in intensive mode, taking place over four days at the South Bank Campus. Lectures will be followed by problem-solving workshops designed to consolidate students' understanding of the topic, and to develop students skills in applying principles of international commercial law in practice (as well as general analytic, group work and problem-solving skills). Prerequisites Bachelor of Laws students: 1030LAW Contracts 2 OR 1015LAW Contracts and Civil Obligations 2. Prerequisites Juris Doctor students: Nil.
