AYN456 Business and Corporations Law

As many business decisions involve a consideration of business and corporate law, postgraduates with an accountancy degree should possess a basic understanding of the Australian legal system, as well as knowledge of business and company law as this will equip them with skills required for professional practice. The rationale for this unit is to introduce students to the Australian legal environment and to develop students' knowledge and understanding of the basic principles of business law and company law. Students will be encouraged to develop their research and analytical skills relevant to contemporary business and corporate practice.
