  • Overview

    In this subject, students are introduced to some of the core principles of contract and consumer protection law, the law of negligence, agency law, and the various legal structures recognised by law for carrying on business. In addition, students are exposed to ethical standards that apply to business throughout its lifetime, from starting a business to contractual relationships that are formed throughout. This subject also adopts a skills-based learning approach. It does this through teaching the basic techniques of problem-solving and promoting an understanding of the dynamic nature of the law. These skills prepare students for more advanced law subjects as well as their professional careers.
