Given the complexity within which commercial transactions are conducted today, an appreciation of the legal system and its impact on commerce and trade is essential for business and commerce students. This is especially pertinent to accountants seeking professional accreditations such as CPA and registration with the Tax Practitioners Board (TPB). Students will develop their knowledge of the legal system through didactic teaching methods and then apply this knowledge in problem-based tutorials and assessments.
This course is designed to provide students with general legal knowledge covering principles underpinning the Australian legal system and the commercial legal responsibilities and risks in conducting business. Additionally this course will cover the law of contracts and torts, especially negligence, Australian company law and the legal nature of partnerships.
