Course content

The LLM in International Economic Law is ideally suited to law students seeking to deepen their legal knowledge of the regulatory environment underpinning the global economy. It will also be attractive to legal practitioners who wish to expand their expertise or to change directions in their career. This qualification should assist lawyers at all stages and from all backgrounds in cultivating an international dimension to their existing knowledge-based and professional portfolio.

The course focuses on the international laws which underpin the broad functioning of the global economy across a range of legal fields. It consists of classic modules on World Trade Law and International Investment Law as well subjects such as International Tax, Competition and Energy Law.

The demand for graduates in this specialist field is growing rapidly along with the increasing global integration of regulation of economic activity as seen in the rise in free trade agreements, investment treaties and international energy agreements.
