As a mixed and emerging economy, China regulates business in many different ways than are typically found within legal systems such as that in Australia. As one of the largest economies in the world and as a major trading partner of Australia, an understanding of China's regulation of international business is crucial for students interested in business law.

This course will introduce students to the essential elements of the Chinese legal order as it is relevant to international business. That international business is both inward and outward - thus foreigners conducting business in China and Chinese businesses conducting business outside China. Unlike more specialized courses, this course will consider all these issues holistically and in context, showing how they relate to each other and together make up a coherent legal order.
