Course content

This legal postgraduate course seeks to extend and develop students' understanding of the law relating to the core aspects of international construction practice, dispute settlement, procurement and sustainability.

The course aims to provide opportunities for students to gain an understanding of a range of global issues affecting construction law and practice and to gain knowledge, understanding and the requisite skills in preparation for employment in international construction legal practice and commercial organisations both in the UK and abroad.

The course is based on an understanding of law as both a vocational discipline and a subject of academic study.

The course is run by the University of the West of England - the largest university in the UK for degrees related to the built environment.

Suitable for professionals based around the globe, it involves both extensive independent research and discussion in the context of online workshops designed to encourage the development of critical analytical and reflective skills. You will be expected to prepare for each workshop and to participate actively in online discussion with your tutors and peers to maximise your experience on the course.

Although, this course starts in January, the application deadline is the 15th December 2017.
