Commerce, Innovation & Technology

Commercial, innovation and technology legal research addresses the significant, growing areas of case law and legislative regulation in the globalised business world today.

Commercial, innovation and technology

In the decade since the financial meltdown, the commercial world has reformed and there has been significant recovery and, in response, there have been changes to literally hundreds of laws, rules and regulations which govern how businesses operate.

The Australian and international commercial courts and arbitration centres are amongst the busiest judicatures, handing down determinations that affect business daily. Innovation, technology and economic growth pose a challenge to traditional models of corporate and commercial law which emphasise efficient use of existing resources and so it is current and future legal research in these areas that will provide new answers.

Our commercial, innovation and technology research seeks to understand and comment on these primary and secondary sources of law across seven legal notabilia;

  • Intellectual Property Law.
  • Bankruptcy & Insolvency Law.
  • Corporate & Commercial Law and Governance.
  • Technology Law & Regulation.
  • Tax and Superannuation Law.
  • Corporate Social Responsibility.
  • International Trade Law.
