Course content

This degree aims to enable students to specialise in subjects related to international business law, equipping them with comprehensive knowledge of the legal processes governing international business, through the systematic and critical understanding of topics relevant to international business transactions such as trade law, international sale of goods and commercial arbitration.

You will deepen and broaden your knowledge of law as an academic subject; acquiring systematic understanding of legal processes, methods and concepts, of the social and political context in which legal processes take place and of appropriate theoretical conceptions of law.

Ultimately, by maximising your academic potential and refining your problem-solving skills in a transnational context through the acquisition of systematic and critical understanding of complex legal, economic, cultural, ethical and political issues informing international trade relations and transnational business you will enhance your professional development and horizons.

The research and writing skills you gain will be transferable to a variety of professional sectors, including the legal profession, policymaking, corporate sector, governmental bodies or academia.

In the School of Law at Middlesex University we have assembled a team of globally-respected academics who provide not only insight and practical direction but access to a considerable network of contacts and connections, notably for internship opportunities within international and domestic organisations.

Among them are Dr Scott Morrison, who researches on the development and regulation of Islamic finance and investment and retail banking, both in the United Kingdom and abroad; Dr Lijun Zhao who specialises on international trade and maritime law; Mariette Jones whose research and teaching focuses on company law and corporate governance; and Dr Nadia Bernaz, as our expert in business and human rights law.
