Course summary

Overview

The International Economic Law LLM is an advanced course of study which will provide you with an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the global economy and its legal framework.

There has never been a more important time to understand the global economy: global value chains where goods are made and traded across the world, investment flows that stimulate economic growth and destabilis domestic policies, regional politics pursued through shared economic institutions with neighbours, and international arbitration and dispute settlement challenging the dynamics between individuals and the State, between North and South, and between private and public power, are all at the forefront of contemporary concerns.

This programme provides you with a theoretical and doctrinal knowledge of the legal and institutional frameworks which govern the global economy. You will examine the law and institutions of the global economy in their international, regional, and national settings and examine the pressing contemporary challenges in the global economy.

Career prospects

The School of Law includes amongst its alumni Judges of the Court of Appeal, the High Court and the County Courts, as well as distinguished figures in branches of the legal profession. Legal study provides a mark of excellence in any qualification profile. Apart from judicial appointment or working within the legal profession, past graduates have gone on to undertake Government service, to work within International Humanitarian Organisations, the UN, institutions of the European Union, to pursue careers in commerce, management, banking, marketing, public relations and a whole host of other challenging and rewarding career opportunities.

Any of the Law postgraduate taught programmes offered additionally provide an ideal opportunity to gain advanced specialist knowledge in preparation for further postgraduate research. All programmes of study are designed to enhance academic profiles and to ensure that graduates leave us with highly marketable skills, whatever they decide that market to be.

An LLM in International Economic Law provides rigorous training in legal analysis and promotes critical thinking and independent research skills. As such, it is excellent preparation for those students seeking to pursue a career in legal practice, and who wish to develop their knowledge base and skills in matters of contemporary economic importance. Students will be in a position to pursue careers in areas of trade, investment, financial, or regulatory legal interest, including international organisations, government, or industry. For those interested in the political and social dimensions of global economic regulation, the knowledge base and critical skills developed will support the pursuit of careers in third-sector organisations such as NGOs or charities. The LLM also serves as an entry into further academic training at the postgraduate level, including doctoral studies.

The Liverpool Law School offers a 12-week Legal Research Training to all students on LLM programmes as an integral part of LLM teaching at Liverpool. It is a forum for contextualising and enhancing the development of research skills, analytical skills, critical thinking skills, and academic writing skills that occurs in substantive modules, and more explicitly provides practical and relevant advice on advanced academic research technique that will help you engage with your studies more effectively.

Students can also exit with Pgdip/PgCert awards.
