Applicants should normally have a good first degree in Law, or, exceptionally, in a related subject from a recognised higher education institution in the UK or overseas. The Law School will also take into account the employment experience of applicants where relevant and encourages applications from those wishing to return to academic study to further their knowledge, or those planning to study for a degree while remaining in full-time employment.
Months of entry
There are few states around the world where their nationals do not engage in international trade, and for it to be carried out efficiently and profitably, it is essential that there is a predictable and clear legal framework for international traders to work within.
The LLM International Trade Law is designed to give students interested in careers in international trade or in trade-related government departments a firm introduction to both the law and practice in this challenging and complex area, offering all the traditional modules, such as International Sales and Carriage Law, International Commercial Arbitration, and International Competition Law.
In addition, we offer several modules which are focused on specific aspects of international law such as International Banking and Finance, Information Technology Law and Internet Law which, combined with our core modules, means that those with an interest in practising in specialist areas can gain a solid grounding.
Information for international students
We welcome applications from students whose first language is not English. To ensure such students benefit from postgraduate study, we require evidence of proficiency in English. Our usual entry requirements are as follows: - IELTS: 6.5 (minimum 6.0 in all components) - PTE (Pearson): 62 (minimum 55 in all components)
Fees and funding
