The aim of this unit is to provide students with a broad overview of the key legal issues commonly faced when investing and doing business in Asia. This unit covers areas of commercial law across Asia with primary emphasis on Japan, Indonesia, Malaysia, China and possibly India, including case studies. It covers foreign investment regulation; laws related to foreign investment; contract and/or competition law; labour law; corporate governance; intellectual property; Islamic law and finance (where relevant); corruption; WTO and FTA compliance; dispute resolution; and key issues in modern comparative law which may assist students in their study of `foreign' legal systems.
