The LLM in International Economic Law offers a qualification that combines considerable academic interest with professional utility.
The programme is particularly timely, in light of the ongoing world trade negotiations, the increasing importance of international investment law, the growing need for strengthened international cooperation in relation to banking, finance and other economic issues, as well as the challenges sustainable development and climate change pose for the world economy.
Courses will be taught by seminar. Students are expected to prepare in advance by reading the required materials and by reflecting on the issues to be discussed.
Students will have a dissertation supervisor from whom they can expect guidance and support, but the purpose of the dissertation is to allow students to independently design and conduct a piece of research and analysis.
This programme is designed provide an advanced understanding of the law, institutions and policy concerning international economic relations and their ongoing development by the United Nations, the World Trade Organisation, the World Bank, and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development.
