Brief content description

The aims of the course are for students to develop a general understanding of the context and application of international commercial law. The skills and knowledge offered in this course are particularly useful for the student that upon graduation wishes to work in business enterprises or governmental organizations as, with the continuous growth in international trade and commerce, they place a very high premium on graduates with international commercial law skills. The course is intended to further develop the topics dealt in the "Introduction to European and International Law" course. This course will focus on selected but fundamental topics of the international commercial law (such as international sales, agency and distribution, international bank payments) through the analysis of the related international instruments (conventions, model laws, international agencies regulations). Students are not expected to be familiar with the detail of the instruments discussed and will receive academic support to achieve a sound appreciation of the substantive legal principles in international commercial law and to develop appropriate legal, research and communication skills in this field. The course will be taught in English language. Students are not permitted to use non-English materials or textbooks, and are encouraged to address to the the instructors in English.
