International Commercial Law and Human Rights
This course challenges students to master these 2 fascinating and complex subjects as they compete, cooperate and conflict on an international level. Students get to grips with balancing the rival demands of protecting human rights and promoting business interest through law provision. Students also complete an advanced and in-depth study of subjects including competition law to control monopoly and aggressive business practices to ensure the protection of human rights. An important part of the course is the writing of a detailed dissertation within the specialism of the student's choice. This is an opportunity to select a project topic which may have a direct bearing on the student's professional life. The course is particularly attractive to those seeking a career in government departments, transnational corporations, corporate and rights lobby groups, international law firms and a range of non-governmental organisations.
An Honours degree (2.2 minimum). Degrees in law, the social sciences, or other similar subjects are preferred. Those from other disciplines or with suitable professional experience are considered on an individual basis.
Assessment takes the form of: research proposals including a related bibliographic element, case studies, oral assessments and essays. Each student completes a Master�s dissertation of 15,000 to 20,000 words which deals with an area of chosen study in the 3rd semester.
