COML 3005 Study Period 2 - 2013 Internal - City West Campus
Dear Student, Welcome to International Commercial Law. This course was newly developed in 2009, when it was offered as "LAWS1005 - International Business Law". The content of the course has since been developed further and we constantly endeavour to make improvements based on the teaching experience and student feedback. International commerce and trade has for centuries played an essential role in the development of the world as we know it today. Since the middle of the 20th century improved telecommunication and long-distance transportation technology, as well as a continuous improvement in the social and political environment, international cooperation and the development of international commercial and trade law have led to an unprecedented expansion of international commerce and economical growth in all parts of the world. This course will provide you with a broad overview of the major legal issues impacting on trade and commercial activities across national borders. It will cover aspects within the private international Law, such as contracts of sale of goods, contracts of carriage of goods, payment and dispute settlement as well as issues which fall under the sphere of public international law, such as the WTO, regional trade organisations and agreements. The course comprises lectures and tutorials. You, the student, are expected to keep up with the weekly readings and participate actively in the tutorials. In return for your efforts you will gain interesting insights in the world of international business.
