There are so many distinctive Chinese characteristics in the corporate and securities laws which foreigners will find very interesting and sometimes puzzling. Recognizing the growing importance of China in the new world economy, this course is developed to addresses an area of both academic and practical importance. It will provide students with an opportunity to study selected issues of corporate and securities laws in greater detail than can be covered in the typical introductory Chinese law course. The course examines the Chinese law by comparison primarily with its Australian counterpart.
