Given the increasingly strong economic tie between Australia and China, there is an ever-growing need to have an advanced knowledge of Chinese laws, in particular those concerning the company and securities market.
This specialist subject is designed to provide students with an opportunity to study key issues of Chinese corporate and securities laws in greater depth than is often the case in the typical introductory Chinese law course. To this end, it examines not only the law on the books but also the law in action, as well as recent developments in the area.
This subject is developed and delivered on the basis of the expertise of Dr (Robin) Hui Huang, who is one of the well-respected scholars in corporate and securities law with a particular focus on Chinese issues at the international level. It is a highly valuable subject for students intending to do business and invest in China.
