Course summary

Delve in to the legal principles surrounding the exciting field of global trade with a focus on the shipping industry. Specialise in two key areas of commercial law: International Trade law and Maritime Law, building your knowledge and skills within a continuously growing niche industry. These two areas bring together many fields of law from advanced contract to the law of the sea. The international nature of this course, covering international trade and shipping, is matched by the diverse staff and students that form our truly global community.

You develop a thorough and in-depth knowledge and understanding of the main principles of law in the areas of international trade and maritime law. Exploring the social, political, cultural and economic background of the laws in question, you gain an understanding of how national, European Union Law and International Law interact. You will cover a variety of topics, including:

  • Financing International Trade
  • How Marine Insurance protects ships and cargoes
  • International Law of the Sea issues
  • Sale and Carriage of Goods by Sea Contracts
  • Environmental Protection Laws

At Essex we specialise in commercial law, public law, and human rights law. We are 4th in the UK for research excellence (REF 2014, mainstream universities, THE 2014).
