Course content

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

  • the imposition of tariffs and other trade barriers
  • the negotiation of deep regional trade agreements reducing regulatory barriers between countries
  • the enforcement of trade rules through the WTO.

You’ll learn to apply the rules of international trade law to the complex challenges facing the international trade system. You'll also develop critical perspectives so you can better understand 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.
