Transportation Law focuses on sector-relevant legislation, regulations and contract law to limit personal and corporate exposure. It provides precedent-rich insight into how legal and commercial accountabilities are judged in the transportation sector. This helps learners develop a deep understanding of how sector-specific, Canadian legislation is applied and how commercial contracts and claims work across all modes of transportation. With a new ability to decipher the evolving case law that impacts the import, export and domestic transportation of goods, learners will be able to operate in compliance with laws, understand their obligations, exercise due diligence and know when to seek legal counsel. Course fee includes the CITT exam fee.
