The Commercial Law major introduces students to commercial law and then enables them to undertake an in-depth specialisation in some of its key areas – including corporate law, securities market regulation, banking and finance, taxation, insolvency, franchising, intellectual property, corporate crime, trade practices and consumer law. These specialist units are designed to provide the basis of a professional capability in the area far beyond the general introduction.
