This course focuses on the Australian legal system. In particular, the course considers the different sources of law and the different systems of law; the Commonwealth Constitution and Commonwealth/State relations; the role of Parliament in making statute law; the Australian court system and the role of the judiciary in making "case law" and the role of the executive (government). Areas of substantive law relevant to commerce and business dealings that are examined in detail include contract law, tort law (with particular reference to negligence), property law, consumer law and competition law.
