I am a SAHM to my little boy who will be 4 tomorrow! (wipes away a tear) I am a trained Level 3 childcare worker and I am currently doing my diploma by correspondence. I think I will probably go back to work part time next year when my little boy is at kinder, and then fulltime when he is in prep...... god doesnt the time just fly by???

I've just started back at uni, so mostly student. However 1 day per week I work at Child and Family Services.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Hey Jen -- you can help me with my homework! (just kidding ;))I am doing International Commercial Law this semester (can you get anymore general than that?!?). It's supposed to be designed for people like me with no legal background whatsoever, but there's a helluva lot of assumed knowledge. Oh well, it's kinda interesting... Incoterms, contract law, int'l dispute resolution, int'l sale of goods, Vienna convention -- not sure what else they've got planned for us as the teacher is veering off the course outline somewhat, albeit in an interesting way...
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

Holey! Talk about adding a whole lot of specific specialist areas under the colloquial term of "international law". Some of the subjects mentioned are either 1 or 2 semester’s worth of work or even post grad work. And you're expected to know bits of each one to make sense of it. No wonder you're a bit lost.

Yeah it doesn't help when you have an overly enthusiastic lecturer who veers of the subject and just expects everyone to follow and understand what s/he is talking about.

With contract law to ensure that it's a valid K just remember the 3 basic elements: 1) Offer, 2) Consideration & 3) acceptance- if you have those 3 elements you have a contract, then of course all the exceptions come into play and there are a lot :lol: .

Contract law is heavily intertwined with commercial law which brings you to sales of good. The TPA (Cth) and SGA (States) are confusing enough to get your head around but to know another jurisdictions consumer laws as well is mind boggling and having a layperson interpreting the statute – yeah right that’s why companies pays lawyers all those big bucks haha :shock: . Best advice is look to see where K was made and then you know which jurisdictional law to apply. For instance if a K is signed in China, Chinese law will apply.

With depute resolution you’re looking at ADR procedures like mediation and negotiations etc. Always having in mind to reach a win/win outcome rather than win/lose outcome that way each party is satisfied, and getting to the underlying factors as to why the parties are disputing; trying to reach a resolution without bringing up questions of law.

I think your best bet is to just stick to the lecture notes, readings and cases (if you have to read any) and not get too caught up in the law side of things. I don't think they will test you on application just knowledge of how and when they come into place.

Good luck with it.

:lol: Welcome to my world!

Thanks so much for that Jen. Great summary there. We've covered off contract law (drilling those three key elements into my head) and will be doing ADR later in the semester. At the moment, we're bogged down in Incoterms (though we're only expected to remember one or two key things about each one, not every single point).

Fortunately the assignments are pretty damn easy (one is to analyse 5 case studies and the other is to look at an Australian company going into a JV offshore and what laws might apply) and we have a 90 minute class test that's open book at the end of semester, and no exam (yay!)

I think the main idea is to just give us a broad overview of what it's all about. I know I'm not going to come out of there feeling qualified to make a contract. That's why I pay the big dollars to a legal team!

The class is more from a managerial perspective and I have a lawyer already who takes care of contracts for me, but at least now I know more of what it's about and can try and act moderately intelligent should law ever come up -- afterall, isn't that what managers do? Try to look competent while all the underlings do the hard work and know what a nuffie their boss is :P???
