Module overview

This course lays the foundation for further studies in commercial and maritime law by introducing you to advanced rules and applications of contract law. We will be exploring the ramifications of the tripartite contractual relationship involving agents, of the interaction between contract and property law in the context of debt financing, and of contracting transnationally through electronic means. Although these commercial contexts are very different, the course trains your commercial analytical skills by exposing you to a range of complex relationships which often involve numerous parties and transactions, and by understanding how the law settles these in light of the reasonable expectation of the parties, commercial expedience, the integrity of legal concepts as well as wider policy factors.
