This Chinese Business Law diploma from The University of Western Australia is designed to equip future leaders for the Asian Century and is applicable for those in both the law and non-law sectors.

Develop up-to-date and practical knowledge of Chinese law, economy and cross-border investment as well as law-related cultural literacy. Suited to both recent graduates and those engaged in full-time employment, you'll be taught intensively over 3-4 day learning blocks, including weekends. 

The course is delivered in January and July at UWA's Perth campus. This is followed by an optional Engagement Tour of China (subject to availability), visiting Shanghai, Beijing and/or other important cities between late November and mid-December.
