Content

Private Law A covers three separate areas of private law: company and commercial law, intellectual property and competition law. In company and commercial law you will look at the formation of companies, consider the differences between German, English and American corporate structures, learn and use company-related vocabulary and terminology, discover what commercial law encompasses and the laws which govern it, and consider when relevant legislation such as the Sale of Goods Act (UK), the Uniform Commercial Code (USA) and the the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) come into play. Intellectual property covers the various protection rights such as copyright, patents, design rights and trademarks. You will look at these in the context of the commercial areas which they influence and consider some of the issues surrounding the protection of these rights through legislation and case law. Competition law deals with the objectives of legal protection and the different areas of regulation concerning anti-competitive behaviour, also considering the relationship which exists between competition and IP law. You will identify the legislative instruments used to regulate anti-competitive behaviour in various jurisdictions and learn and utilise the legal terminology associated with this field of law. *The course consists of 3 units:* 1. Intellectual Propety 2. Competition Law 3. Company & Commerical Law
