There is a reason that these notes are the most downloaded LAWS1100 notes on StudentVIP. This is a comprehensive compilation of notes for the University of Queensland's LAWS1100 (Business Law) subject.

These notes were created by synthesising textbook readings, lecture notes and additional in-lecture explanations. They would be of great assistance for both study purposes and particularly useful in the final exam.

The notes were primarily written to enable the quick and easy application of the ILAC answer format during the final exam.

In total the notes are 121 pages broken down into 7 sections based on each main topic / body of Law covered in the course, these being;
Tort Law, Making Deals, Australian Consumer Law (ACL), Intellectual Property (IP), Starting a Business and Financial Difficulty, with a final section that summarises other smaller yet still important areas of law covered within the course (enforcing deals, insurance, partnerships & employees). There is also a table of contents included for quick navigation of the notes during the final exam as well as a sheet that contains relevant abbreviations.

In order to permit the quick and easy application of the ILAC answer format during the final exam each section is structured into 5 columns, these being:
- "Law Area": (for navigation purposes): States main body of law within particular section (e.g. Within Tort Law headings include; Tort of Trespass, Tort of Nuisance, Tort of Defamation, etc.)
- "Sub Area": (also for navigation purposes): Where applicable further breaks down "Law Area" into more specific sections (e.g. within Tort of Trespass headings include: Trespass to Land, Trespass to Goods, Trespass to the person, etc.)
- "Law": Essentially provides the "Law" section that would be included within a standard ILAC answer, including applicable defences, remedies and other useful information.
- "Cases/Legislation": Provides the name of cases/legislation that are applicable and should be considered for each Area/Sub-Area of law with a small explanation of what the case relates to. E.g. Within Tort of Trespass to land: "Interference with airspace: (Kelsen v Imperial Tobacco Co)" or "Refuses to leave land in reasonable time: (Cowell v Rosehill Racecourse"), etc.)
- "Definitions": Includes any other relevant information or definitions of a particular Area or Sub-Area of Law as well as a page reference to where this definition can be found within the Textbook.

(See sample notes for a better understanding)

During the final exam - with the assistance of this information - a student need only read the question, determine the apparent issue (Issue). Using the included table of contents, find within these notes the area of law that is applicable, navigate to this section and write down the applicable law from the "Law" column including the name of applicable cases/legislation found directly across in the "Cases/Legislation" column (Law). And then continue, using the information stated in the Law section taken from these notes, apply the facts of the situation to the law (Application) and draw a conclusion (Conclusion), producing a high quality ILAC answer.
