Students who undertake the tour enrol in the unit MLL344 Chinese Commercial Law (undergraduate)/MLM703 (postgraduate) and during the intensive two week program divide their time between classes conducted at our Shanghai host University, the Shanghai University of Finance & Economics (SHUFE), field trips and sightseeing in and around China's financial and commercial city, Shanghai. In addition to covering all the necessary commercial law subjects in the classroom and visiting the court, a Chinese law firm, a foreign law firm, the Arbitration Commission and the Australian Consulate General in Shanghai, students have the opportunity to experience new activities such as visiting the Shanghai Stock Exchange, a Night Cruise on Yangzhi River and a visit to the China Pavilion of the World Expo. There is also an opportunity to visit the nearby beautiful cities of Hangzhou (with West Lake) and Suzhou.
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.
The unit 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.
