Chinese Commercial Law Study Tour

21 June - 6 July 2014

Trimester 2

The Deakin School of Law is inviting students to travel to the People's Republic of China between T1 and T2 to develop an understanding of the Chinese legal system and its relationship to history and culture.

Over two weeks, students will undertake a unit in Chinese Commercial Law by participating in classes exploring contract law, law of joint ventures, as well as foreign trade law related to intellectual property, labour, employment and dispute resolution. Classes will be followed up by industry visits to help students relate classroom learnings with real world applications.

In addition to campus classes in Beijing, participants will visit Qufu City (birthplace of Confucius) and Xi'an (well-known for terracotta warriors) to learn the history behind the structures of Chinese Law.
