International Commercial Law

The programme offers guidance and academic support in the main areas of international commercial law and regulation. You may choose from an extensive list of electives ranging from international trade law, to shipping, to business regulation. Students may choose to offer those electives with a more narrow commercial angle such as international trade, insurance, banking or shipping law; or they may choose to focus more on the business or trade regulation based electives such as competition law, financial law, WTO law, taxation, energy law and EU business regulation; or they may prefer a combination of the 2 sets. You will be given the support to research new and developing areas of international commercial law under the guidance of your expert tutors.

Entry requirements

Applicants should normally hold a good 1st degree in law, or an equivalent qualification in a related discipline, and must be fluent in written and spoken English.

Applicants with a 1st degree in a subject other than law will be considered, but it should be noted that this may restrict the choice of modules where content is dependent on a prior knowledge of law.
