Course summary

Programme description

Since the establishment of the Bretton Woods System in the aftermath of the Second World War, we have seen an extraordinary evolution of international economic relations towards interdependence and integration. Discussions on this process, known as economic globalisation, are commonplace.

This programme seeks to provide you with in-depth knowledge and critical understanding of the institutions, rules and principles of the international economic system, as well as of key legal and policy issues arising from the globalisation of the world economy.

The programme structure is designed to ensure that you gain a thorough knowledge and critical understanding of the core branches of international economic law through the compulsory courses, while allowing for an individually tailored selection of option courses, depending on your personal interests and future career plans.

Learning outcomes

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.

Career opportunities

This programme is suitable for professionally qualified lawyers wishing to practise international law professionally, whether in law firms or at the bar, as legal advisers in foreign ministries, other government departments, international organisations, or NGOs. It may also be of value to anyone seeking to develop a career in diplomacy or international relations.
