Commercial Law Pathway
Commercial Law is the body of law that applies to the rights, relations, and conduct of persons and businesses engaged in commerce and trade. It consists of a mix of state and federal law, in proportions dependent on the subject areas involved. All 50 states have adopted the Uniform Commercial Code. In addition, the U.S. Congress regulates interstate commerce, including federal bankruptcy, consumer protection, national banking, and other relevant subjects. At FIU, commercial law includes courses dealing with sales, international trade, real estate, corporate finance, payment transactions, secured credit, banking, bankruptcy, and related transactional and experiential subjects. Courses in “Payment Systems” and “Secured Transactions” are bar-tested subjects in the state of Florida. All commercial law courses are part of the broader business law curriculum.
