This is a second level course, which is compulsory for LLB students planning to become professional lawyers. The course consists of four elements: the law of agency, the law of partnership, company law and insolvency law. The lectures will focus on the creation of agency, partnership and companies of different types; the rules that enable these commercial organisations to function; and the law concerning the termination of these commercial organisations. One reason for these organisations coming to an end is that they become insolvent. The rules on insolvency and bankruptcy will be a significant element of the course.
|Session||Second Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
This course provides an introduction to several important areas of law relating to commercial organisations, namely the law of agency, the law relating to partnerships and companies. The course also introduces the law of insolvency (both corporate and non-corporate).
This course is compulsory for the LLB degree. The School of Law offers teaching within this subject area for non-law students in its Business Law courses.
