An understanding of commercial property law represents a specialisation relevant to senior management in the corporate world, particularly those involved in property management and investment. It focuses on one element of commercial law - commercial property law, and is designed to address requirements of professional associations relating to property law. This includes understanding rules of ownership and securitization of property, including intellectual property. It also contains topics on trusts and how they are used to hold property including superannuation funds, and insurance law. Trusts are used frequently in commercial environments to hold property and as an investment vehicle, whilst insurance is a necessary part of property management.

The material covered in this course builds on foundations established in LAW1500 Introduction to Business and Company Law. The course provides an introduction to the law of commercial property, including real and personal property law; intellectual property; securitisation of property interests; trusts and how they hold property including superannuation structures, and insurance law. This includes material on the Torrens System of land title; mortgages and priorities between different lenders; strata and community title and leases. Intellectual property covers copyright; patents and industrial design, trademarks and passing off.
