Course content

Our LLM in International Economic Law (IEL) is designed to help you to think deeply and critically about issues surrounding the shifts in global economic power and reconstituted global networks, and provide an understanding of the informal processes and formal regulatory frameworks that govern the global economy, including the World Trade Organisation (WTO), World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF). You will develop an appreciation of the interplay among national, regional and international regulatory frameworks, fundamental to an understanding of International Economic Law.

An IEL degree is valuable to graduates of law, economics, accounting, politics and sociology who are practicing or wish to practice in a government agency or private industry and require a detailed understanding of the economic principles and legal institutions that govern the negotiation of regional and international trade agreements, foreign direct investment, international financial transactions, project finance and technology transfer.
