Why not combine an international travel experience with your studies by undertaking the Chinese Commercial Law Study Tour. The tour has been running for 17 years and to-date over 466 students have taken part in this amazing experience.
The 2012 Study Tour headed to the amazing and vibrant city of Shanghai. This energetic city reveals why China is the economic powerhouse that it is. In 2014 the Study Tour will return to Beijing, China's vibrant capital city.
The unit aims to enable students to develop an understanding of the Chinese legal system and its relationship to Chinese history and culture as well as to develop an awareness of Chinese Commercial Law in the context of foreign trade and investment.
Students who undertake the tour enrol in MLL344 Chinese Commercial Law (undergraduate) or MLM703 (postgraduate) and during the intensive two week program divide their time between classes conducted at our host University.
MLL344/MLM703 Chinese Commercial Law covers topics such as the Chinese legal system, contract law, foreign investment and trade laws, intellectual property law, labour law relating to joint ventures and dispute resolution.
The tour will include field trips and sightseeing in and around China's capital city, Beijing. The tour covers the relevant commercial law topics in the classroom and includes visits to the Chinese courts, a Chinese law firm, a foreign law firm, the Arbitration Commission and the Australian Consulate General and students have the opportunity to experience the Chinese culture visiting key sightseeing destinations.
The study tour is open to all Deakin University students (undergraduate and postgraduate), as well as students from other institutions and law practitioners. It is a fantastic opportunity to combine study and travel and is very popular with around 40 students taking part each year.
