In the past decade, issues such as globalisation, deregulation, and the pervasiveness of electronic commerce have resulted in fundamental changes to conventional career opportunities in both the business and government sectors. For that reason, it is an advantage for many professionals to have knowledge and understanding of the legal aspects of business and taxation issues. The development of legal, analytical and writing skills is also becoming increasingly important in professional business practice. Business law is of direct relevance to those involved in professional practice or other advisory roles in the private or government sectors, where knowledge of commercial law and the legal environment is necessary. Studies in this area will enhance relevant skills for students seeking placements in legal, commercial and governmental regulatory and compliance positions anywhere in the world.
