Course content

The last 50 years has seen an explosion in international commerce. Trade, in particular, has always been the engine room of legal development. Today, thanks to the internet, international commercial transactions are so common that people barely realise they are conducting them – and at the other end of the scale multinational companies conduct million, even billion, pound transactions. These two transaction types and all those in-between rely on international commercial law.

The International Commercial Law LLM program at the University of Aberdeen presents students with an opportunity to mould their study of this complex area. Drawing on the expertise of staff, the Law School offers a variety of specialist courses which cater for the full spectrum of international commercial law.The intention is that by the end of the programme students will have developed a methodology which will enable them to analyse confidently the problems arising in international commercial transactions.
