Advanced Topics in Private Law - LAWS836

Private law is a broad classification of law that deals with relationships between individuals, as opposed to the relationship between individuals and the state, or between states (international law). This proposed unit, Advanced Topics in Private Law will allow a deeper examination, analysis and critique of specific issues in private law, as well as the interaction between areas of private obligation. These generally include the laws relating to contract, tort, property, succession and family law. The unit will (from year to year) have a particular focus on one of these areas or on the analysis of the fundamental theories of obligation that underpin them all. The unit will build on prescribed areas of private law covered in core units such as LAWS803, LAWS804 and LAWS809 as well as on other areas of private obligations.
