What is Commercial Law?

Commercial law is considered to be a branch of civil law, and can sometimes be referred to as business law. Commercial law deals with the rights and conducts of individuals and businesses that are engaged in business, commerce, and consumer transactions. This branch of law can involve issues of both private law and public law. Main legal activities of commercial law include the involvement of regulating corporate contracts, reviewing hiring processes, and the manufacture and sales of consumer goods.

Commercial Law: A Static Field of Law

The world of business is dynamic and can change from day to day, depending on the industry. Despite the dynamic nature of the business world, commercial laws have remained quite static throughout history. Revisions to the articles Uniform Commercial Code have been made, although these revisions have been infrequent. The revision process usually tends to be quite slow and deliberate, taking several years to complete. It is quite important for commercial law to remain static, as a frequent changing of laws and regulations would deeply impact the business world. Currently, one can conduct business with a high degree of certainty regarding the law and the legality of their transactions.

A broad concept that describes the Substantive Law that governs transactions between business entities, with the exception of maritime transportation of goods (regulated by Admiralty and Maritime Law). Commercial law includes all aspects of business, including advertising and marketing, collections and Bankruptcy, banking, contracts, negotiable instruments, Secured Transactions, and trade in general. It covers both domestic and foreign trade; it also regulates trade between states.
