This unit has two principal aims. First, to introduce the current Indian legal system and, second, to study in detail some aspects of Indian commercial law, particularly law in relation to commercial transactions in India. The unit introduces Indian legal history and India’s law-making mechanisms and then examines in more detail some key topics in Indian commercial law. After having completed the unit, you should have an understanding of both the underlying principles of the legal system, and Indian Commercial Law. Furthermore, you will have some exposure to the particular rules or principles which affect commercial transactions with India. The unit is designed to maximise the benefits to be gained from the study tour in India, drawing on the expertise available at the Indian institutions.
