International Commercial Law


This course examines contract law as it applies to an international commercial law context and can be described as a sub-branch of ‘transnational’ law. It encompasses the laws that govern legal commercial relations between parties that extend beyond a single national jurisdiction. The course explores principles of effective risk management as they apply to international law and analyses different legal systems in various countries. The course is designed to provide you with knowledge and skills pertaining to the principles which apply to the formation of contracts between parties in different countries; international sale of goods and exporting; carriage of goods by sea; international trade finance; international distribution and agency; foreign investment law; Free Trade Agreements; and international dispute resolution, including choice of law and the choice of the appropriate forum for resolving commercial disputes.
