Subject outline

In this subject students explore some of the core principles of contract law, consumer protection, the law of negligence, as well as various legal structures recognised by the law for carrying on a business. Students will examine the role that historical, economic and social factors play in shaping the main features of the law and the practical operation of the law in its social setting. This unit adopts a skill-based learning approach. It does this through teaching the basic techniques of problem solving. Learning these skills prepares students for more advanced law units such as company and finance law, banking and taxation laws.
