This module examines key aspects of commercial law both from a domestic (England and Wales) as well as from an international viewpoint. The focus will be on sale of goods and agency. Stress will be laid on the practical implications of the rules of commercial law, together with more theoretical issues. The module aims (a) to give you an understanding of different aspects of commercial (and consumer) law; (b) to encourage you to think practically in this field, and apply the legal rules and principles they have learned to specific commercial situations; and (c) to enable you to identify and evaluate issues within commercial law.

This module does not require any prior legal knowledge, and is suitable for students from any discipline. Although you may find it an advantage to have studied Legal Foundations for Business  (BEP 2080)
