This subject examines the broad range of legal issues that may arise when setting up and expanding a business. Students build on their learning and the material in 70327 Commercial Law by applying advanced principles of commercial legal structures to common commercial transactions, including licensing, distribution, franchising and agency relationships. The subject considers the use of common business structures, particularly trading and investment trusts and joint ventures and limited partnerships, as well as the legal liability issues that may arise with these structures. The use of franchise systems is a particular focus as these draw together legal issues arising under contract, fiduciary law, corporate law and general commercial law. This is a broad-based advanced commercial law subject of interest to students wishing to pursue legal practice or a professional career in general commercial, corporate and banking and finance areas.
