Course content

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

  • e-commerce regulation
  • finance and securities
  • international dispute resolution.

You’ll learn about the legal framework that governs commercial activities, cross-border transactions, and the harmonisation of commercial law. You’ll learn how to apply the law in a commercial setting and also develop critical perspectives so you can evaluate cutting-edge scenarios and recent reforms in international commercial law.

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.
