Course content

  • Acquire a comprehensive overview of inner workings of the international corporate world.
  • Learn to structure, manage and complete highly complex, multi-stakeholder corporate transactions.
  • Get to grips mandatory topics in comparative corporate law, capital markets and cross-border M&A.
  • Combine legal know-how with business administration, accounting and technology.
  • Discover the business and legal expertise needed to thrive in today’s competitive marketplace.

Globalization and business internationalization—coupled with the economic impact of rapid technological change—calls for lawyers with transversal skill sets. Complex, multijurisdictional transactions are the standard for large multinationals, and commercial lawyers must acquire a theoretical, commercial and practical understanding of these cross-border transactions to manage client’s needs and expectations.

This specialization in International Law responds to these changes, educating the next generation of border-breaking commercial lawyers. It offers rigorous academic and professional training in corporate law, finance, cross-border mergers and acquisitions, tax, international trade, antitrust, and other vital modules for today’s commercial lawyers. Real-life examples and case studies will give students practical, technologically focused experience into deals of this kind, paving the way for their future careers.
