Course summary

Course description

The LLM in International Trade Transactions offers you an opportunity to gain specialist expertise in a very important area of international commercial law.

Developing countries require more lawyers educated in this area, as the economic development of such countries necessitates deepening involvement in the international trade process and it's underpinning legal structures.

This course provides you with the core knowledge and understanding of the background to international trade, the transactional conditions conductive to its development, and the specific and general problems which threaten the success of individual transactions.

Aims

  • Develop specialist training in all aspects of international trade regulation, transactional requirements and the problems that threaten the success of trade.
  • Equip more lawyers with the tools in international trade process and legal structure to further global development.
  • Provide students you with a good understanding of international trade, the transactional conditions conductive to its development and the specific and general problems which threaten the success and integrity of individual transactions.
  • Develop research and legal writing skills in the writing of a dissertation.

Special features

The Law School works in partnership with institutions outside the higher education sector to enable you to produce research with a wider relevance and to develop your knowledge and expertise.

These are particularly suitable if you want to gain specialist knowledge in your chosen subject area. You may continue your studies in order to pursue an academic career, or go on to pursue your chosen field.
