In just one generation, the world has witnessed a dramatic increase in the economic interdependence of countries and shifts in global economic power. This reshaped global economic map has many drivers, including key international institutions and accords that seek to promote enhanced competitiveness, trade and foreign direct investment globally.
The LLM in International Economic Law aims to provide students with both a theoretical understanding and the practical legal skills set for analysing the roles that institutions play in regulating crucial international economic relations and their specific rules that often become the agreed framework for national regulation across economic sectors.
This programme will enable you to explore the significant policy issues that arise in the development and implementation of these international economic legal frameworks.
You will be able to choose from a comprehensive range of modules that focus on these international economic regulatory frameworks as they impact diverse economic sectors, including finance, trade, investment, innovation and knowledge.
Your fellow students will come from the UK and more than 80 other countries, each able to draw on prior academic and, in many cases, professional experience from different jurisdictions to enrich discussion and debate in class.
You will have the opportunity to critically explore pressing development, environmental and financial stability concerns arising from the globalisation of the world economy in a genuinely international atmosphere.
The knowledge and skills gained on this course are suitable for careers in government, international organizations, law firms and NGOs concerned with international development, trade, investment and finance.
