Course content

Economies in today’s world are increasingly interconnected, posing new legal challenges in areas such as:

  • e-commerce regulation
  • corporate governance standards
  • the enforcement of trade and competition rules.

You’ll learn about the regulation of trading and commercial activities, cross-border transactions, and the harmonising ofcommercial law. You’ll also learn to apply the rules of international trade law and develop critical perspectives so you can evaluate cutting-edge scenarios and the theories underlying trade liberalisation.

The course is ideal if you’re already a legal practitioner in your home country, although this is not essential as long as you have completed a basic legal education.
