Commercial Law

Commercial Law means the law that governs business activities. All businesses use commercial law to create wealth, and to identify and mitigate risks.

Where can Commercial Law take you?

A Bachelor of Laws graduate can become a commercial lawyer. A Bachelor of Commerce graduate who has majored in Commercial Law (depending on the other business subjects studied) could become a financial accountant, financial adviser, investment consultant, receiver, regulator or business policy adviser. An academic career specialising in commercial law is also a possibility.
