Course content

This pathway draws on our research strengths in the areas of international trade law, EU law, law of comparative regional integration and transnational economic relations more widely. The principal focus is on the multilateral trading system and the law of the World Trade Organisation. Our modules will allow you to develop in-depth specialisation in key related areas, such as the environment, public procurement, or competition law.

This pathway is an excellent choice for those who want to grasp the foundations of international trade, but also engage with critical contemporary issues. This pathway will also provide a unique opportunity for deeper understanding of the challenges facing the United Kingdom in the Brexit context.
