China is playing an increasingly important part in global commerce. It now crucially impacts on the landscape of the world's economy, especially with the country's success in becoming a World Trade Organization (WTO) member. China business at the present time is a virtually indispensable component of life for people and enterprises around the world, particularly in Hong Kong where initiatives are being generated from the Closer Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA). In this environment, specialized knowledge of Chinese business law is becoming increasingly sought after, especially by those in the fields of law, business and general administration. The Master of Laws in Chinese Business Law programme, launched by the Lee Shau Kee School of Business and Administration of The Open University of Hong Kong (OUHK), is designed to meet the strong demand for useful knowledge in Chinese business law in a context where law and business are intertwined, and to provide relevant cross-border and comparative perspectives. Course content emphasizes practicality and broad coverage to help students gain a solid understanding of Chinese business law. This programme is suitable for business management professionals in Chinese-foreign (including Hong Kong and Taiwanese) joint ventures and foreign-related enterprises. It is also suitable for managers and proprietors of non-government enterprises as well as small and medium-sized enterprises. The programme provides students with the knowledge of business law which is required for any business undertakings within and outside China . The programme will be delivered online in the e-learning mode, and will be presented in both Chinese and English versions. It involves a combination of eight core Chinese business law courses and four elective courses in business and/or law areas. The course 'Chinese Contract Law' gives learners a thorough overview of the principles and practices of Chinese contract law, as well as its implications in business law. The course will review the basic structure of Chinese contract law, including the legislation known as the Contract Law of the People's Republic of China, and other related laws and regulations. Through this course, learners will attain a good grasp of the core areas of coverage of contract law. Learners are expected to be able to apply the principles of contract law to real life cases upon completion of this course. The course focuses on the operation of principles of contract law in business scenarios. Each unit reviews contract law from a business perspective in order to equip learners with the ability to apply the law in commercial practice.
