Entry requirements

Applicants should normally hold a good first degree in law, or an equivalent qualification in a related discipline, and must be fluent in written and spoken English. We expect applicants who are not nationals of English-speaking countries OR have not successfully completed an academic qualification equivalent to a UK undergraduate degree taught in English to have an overall IELTS score of at least 7.0. Applicants with a first degree in a subject other than law will be considered, but it should be noted that this may restrict the choice of modules where content is dependent on a prior knowledge of law.

Course content

The Specialist LLM in International Economic Law offers you the opportunity to develop the knowledge and skills needed in the area of economic regulation - this includes world trade law, competition law, investment regulation, business regulation and energy regulation.

The demand for graduates in this specialist degree is ever increasing with globalisation and the increasing integration of global regulation on economic activity (such as the rise in free trade agreements, investment treaties and international energy agreements).

The Specialist LLM in International Economic Law concerns largely the regulation of economic activity from an internationalist perspective. This could range from the regulation of free trade and competition, to the use of energy.

There is also the opportunity for those who are interested to explore the field of EU business regulation. You will be given the support to research new and developing areas of international economic law under the guidance of your expert tutors.
