Overview

Gain a critical understanding of international law as it relates to commercial activities in a global economy. Your enhanced commercial awareness allied to your specialist legal expertise should give you a distinct advantage in what is a competitive global business environment.

With modules focusing on the European Union and how the law influences the development of supranational markets, your course will refine your knowledge of international law and will provide a firm platform for exploring the legal regulation of free trade throughout the world.

Your dissertation will give you the opportunity to pursue a research interest, helping you to further specialise in your chosen career.

This course responds to the need for lawyers, business managers, policy makers and other professionals functioning in commercial fields by giving them a sophisticated understanding of the legal issues affecting the governance and practice of international trade.

The advantage of this course is that it does not approach the topic of law in isolation, but seeks to provide a business and commercial context to assist the understanding and evaluation of the way the law functions. There is an induction programme in legal skills and methods at the start of the course, which can make this course of interest to non-law graduates as well as those who already hold degrees in law.
