Business, Commercial & Corporate Law

Corporate and commercial law provides the framework within which business is conducted. It includes laws relating to companies and securities, contracts, bankruptcy, financial services regulation, banking and finance. At UNSW students examine not just the rules of corporate and commercial law but how the actions of corporations touch the lives of individuals. At postgraduate level, our courses in corporate and commercial law and business law provide highly relevant legal knowledge set in a practical commercial and regulatory context. Courses are taught by a combination of UNSW law academics, leading practitioners, distinguished guest lecturers and international faculty.


UNSW Law’s Centres, Networks and Groups bring together some of the keenest academic minds in the law to address issues that matter. They provide excellent opportunities for our students to work alongside the discipline’s leading academics.
