Course content

Develop the practical skills needed to act as a legal adviser in the resolution of international commercial disputes.

Global commercial transactions are becoming more complex, posing new legal challenges in areas such as:

  • cross-border contracts for the supply of goods or services
  • finance and securities
  • international dispute resolution.
You’ll learn about the legal framework that governs commercial activities and cross-border transactions.
You’ll engage with cutting-edge research. Sussex has internationally recognised academics in international commercial law. You’ll learn how to apply the law in a commercial setting and also develop critical perspectives. You'll be able to assess cutting-edge scenarios and recent reforms in international commercial law.
This 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.
