This unit provides an overview of the consumer protection provisions of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth).
This unit deals with the legal problems arising from the formation and operation of international commercial transactions. Understanding the law and practice regarding international commercial transactions is a prerequisite for the development of trade with Australian businesses.
The ageing population, increasing incidences of mentally disabling conditions such as dementia, the effects of familial breakdown, minimising taxation, and providing for family members have all led to the growing need for effective planning for the future. in addition, people are increasingly concerned with protecting, growing and transferring wealth. this unit seeks to conceptualise a framework in which the issues that arise in state planning can be critically considered.
This unit includes a study if the concept of Intellectual Property and the principles and policies of intellectual property law. Topics covered include copyright, designs, patents, innovation patents, trademarks, passing off, and breach of confidence.
Public international law is the foundational law that governs the rules operating as between states. It establishes, for instance, the contexts in which force may be used, how new states come into being, what environmental obligations states owe to one another, and the immunities states and their representatives may enjoy from prosecution. This unite introduces you to this area of law which is vital to understanding many high-profile work events and to Australian law which is increasingly being shaped by norms of international human rights law.
The relationship between law and ethics in healthcare is critical but at times contested. This unit explores that relationship, aiming to lay the foundations of an advanced understanding of law and ethics as they relate to healthcare.
This unit develops an understanding of the major conceptual issues underpinning contemporary debates and proposals for law reform in the following main areas of health law: withholding and withdrawing medical treatment and euthanasia; organ donation; embryonic stem cell research; and genetic engineering. It then aims to develop an understanding of the role such a clarification can play in contributing to, and resolving, some of the more intractable issues in the debates.
Although grounded in principles of English common law, Australian contact law has, like many other areas of Australian law, developed a distinctly Australian slant, particularly in the last 20 years. These emerging principles, as well as the more fundamental contact law concepts, will be explored in this unit. Where appropriate, emphasis will be placed on the legal principles applicable in Queensland.
