Law and Investment in Asia (LAWS6932)
UNIT OF STUDY
The aim of this unit is to provide students with a broad overview of the key legal issues commonly faced when investing and doing business in Asia. This unit covers areas of commercial law across Asia, including Japan, China, Southeast Asia (especially Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar) and India. It focuses especially on international treaties increasingly impacting on foreign trade and investment regulation in the region; aspects of corporate governance, contract and/or competition law; corporate social responsibility, anti-corruption law and consumer protection; dispute resolution (especially international commercial and investor-state arbitration); and key issues in modern comparative law which may assist students in their study of 'foreign' legal systems. The unit also involves case studies and occasional guest lecturers.
