Module leader: Professor Nelson Enonchong
This module explores the key theoretical and doctrinal foundations of modern commercial law. It offers a thorough grounding in the key subject areas that make up this diverse field of study. At a theoretical level, subjects include, among others, the underlying principles of commercial law, a topical example of which is the role of “good faith” in commercial law and the nature of property rights. At a doctrinal level, subjects covered include domestic agency, domestic sale of goods (in particular the Sale of Goods Act regime) and retention of title, international sale of goods (contract type and conformity of documents and goods) and the financing of international trade (autonomy and letters of credit).
