Birkbeck, University of London
International Economic Law (intensive)
This programme enables you to tailor your studies to your professional and research interests. You choose 1 out of 2 critical pathways, electing to combine the study of international economic law with either finance and global markets or with justice and development. Both pathways draw on critical research to examine contemporary issues and problems: International Finance and Economic Law; or International Finance and Economic Law. Focusing on the law, economics and practice of international finance leading up to the Global Financial Crisis of 2008, you will be presented with critical theoretical tools with which to interrogate the role of finance in society, and in particular its effects on value systems. This programme�s critical depth and breadth affords you an opportunity to concretise and engage with the questions you have asked about the failures of finance. To achieve this, you will be given a solid grounding in the legal and economic principles of finance.
Good second-class honours degree in law or a related discipline. If English is not your first language or you have not previously studied in English, the requirement for this programme is the equivalent of an International English Language Testing System (IELTS Academic Test) score of 7.0, with not less than 6.0 in each of the sub-tests.
Within your chosen pathway, you study 3 core modules, one of which is a dissertation, and 3 option modules.
For most modules, final assessment is based on a combination of classroom presentations and/or an essay submission, not exceeding 4000 words. There is a compulsory dissertation (which amounts to one module) of 8,000 to 10,000 words.
