This unit introduces students to the Australian legal system, including contract law, and focuses on corporate law and regulation.

The unit will provide students with perspectives on a range of commercially important legal issues such as forming a business, management responsibilities, investor/shareholder protection, and insolvency. Topics include contract law, agency, partnerships, characteristics of companies, director's duties, rights of shareholders, voluntary administration, and liquidation. The unit develops graduate capabilities associated with discipline specific knowledge, critical thinking and communication skills.
