Course summary

World economies are increasingly interconnected, posing new legal challenges in areas such as:

  • the imposition of tariffs and other trade barriers
  • the negotiation of deep regional trade agreements reducing regulatory barriers between countries
  • the enforcement of trade rules through the WTO.

Sussex is a recognised centre for research excellence in international trade law. We have one of the largest academic interdisciplinary trade research groups in the world, the UK Trade Policy Observatory (UKTPO). You’ll engage with cutting-edge research and learn to apply the rules of international trade law to the complex challenges facing the international trade system.

The course is ideal if you’re already a legal practitioner in your home country, although this is not essential, as long as you have completed a basic legal education. You'll develop critical perspectives so you can understand the theories underlying trade liberalisation. You’ll develop the practical skills needed by legal advisers in the resolution of international trade disputes.

CAREERS

This course will enable you to work as a legal practitioner in a variety of roles, for example:

  • advising on cross-border commercial transactions
  • as an arbitrator in international commercial disputes
  • as a government official
  • as an expert in an NGO or international organisation.
