Course content

This programme is designed for flexible, online, distance learning at your own time, location and pace with the added value of advancing your professional skills in treaty negotiation at a summer course on campus, guided and inspired by our highly-experienced specialist team.

Economic globalisation and recent world events, including Brexit, have thrown a spotlight on the issues, challenges and complexities of international trade and trade negotiation. We offer a specialist LLM programme in this area with career opportunities for skilled and ambitious lawyers with broad and transferable skills to continue to grow.

At Aberdeen we’ve combined the teaching and research strength of our long-established law school and the calibre of our first-class teaching team with our growing international profile and activity to create options for this new LLM.

This option offers the benefits of a ‘blended learning’ experience, combining the advantages of an online, distance learning programme with the extra opportunity to further develop your professional skills in trade negotiation. This degree is also available full-time on campus, or as a purely online programme with a dissertation instead of the professional skills course.
