In this subject students develop an understanding of international commercial transactions. They examine the major legal frameworks for the international regulation of commercial transactions, as well as major international trade organisations (e.g. WTO, EU). The subject also provides an introduction to dispute resolution issues in the context of international transactions. The subject moves from understanding the legal and regulatory frameworks of international transactions, the types of property and what legal rights are involved in these transactions, to examining the main aspects of a transaction: payment, contracts, insurance, and dispute resolution. Students move beyond a theoretical understanding of these concepts in the workshops, where they solve real-time legal problems involving all aspects of an international commercial transaction.

Students' skills in drafting, statutory interpretation and legal analysis are reinforced through real-time transaction workshops.
