International Commercial Law for Business


International Commercial Law for Business is aimed specifically at TAFE and university students as a ’first base’ reference on the legal framework of international trade. It provides the key principles highlighted by clearly stated learning outcomes, legal case summaries, case studies (including comparative analyses of Indonesian and Chinese import/export), tutorial and self-help questions, with a bibliography for further reading. The style is suitable for students with English as a second language (LES) and overseas students.

This book includes foreign laws to give an appreciation that, in international trade, different cultures and systems use different laws which may be difficult to understand. The author argues that such an appreciation of foreign laws is the basis for understanding the international character of trade. Zeller’s book will give students an understanding and a working knowledge to successfully trade on the international front.
