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. Those differences relate to everything from government participation in the economy to the decentralized regulatory role of the provinces and local communist party leadership. 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. In so doing the course will consider issues related to investment, trade, securities, finance, intellectual property, real estate, transnational contracts, and so on.
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 to students that are interested in international business law. This is especially so given how many of our students will find that their legal practice or business involves China and hence Chinese regulation.
Finally, understanding how China regulates international business permits students through comparative reflection to understand better how international business is regulated within their own country.
