Business law

Upgrade your knowledge and skillset of business law

Take advantage of the need for increasing legal literacy and business law expertise among lawyers and non-lawyers working in business, accounting, and finance, commercial and corporate environments.

What is business law?

Business law concerns both commercial law and corporate, securities and finance law, as well as taxation law. It involves the examination of what makes a corporation, how it is structured and who or what is responsible for its control. When investigating commercial law, you will realise how it relates to the notions of property, both real (such as real estate) and personal (such as possessions). You will also comprehend the importance of the most significant means by which the ownership of property is transferred from one person to another: the contract.

The postgraduate business law course is suitable for legal practitioners such as solicitors, barristers, magistrates, judges and in-house corporate counsel as well as non-legal professionals such as accountants, account executives, business analysts, business managers and economists.
