University of Aberdeen
International Commercial Law (with professional skills)
The programme offers students the opportunity to develop key practical skills in arbitration, instead of developing research skills through the writing and submission of a Master's thesis. Students on this programme will undertake an intensive summer school programme, followed by a simulated practical exercise and submission of an extended piece of writing.
Normally a 2.1 honours degree in law (or another related discipline) or equivalent. Relevant practical experience in the field of commercial law will also be beneficial.
Core modules: Generic legal research skills; professional arbitration skills; either international commercial arbitration or international commercial arbitration in the Asia Pacific. Optional modules: Energy innovation and law; oil and gas law; private international law (jurisdiction in business transactions); international intellectual property law; competition law; comparative and international insolvency law; World Trade Organisation (GATT); choice of law in business transactions; corporate environmental liability; European economic law; trade marks and brand development; international trade and finance law; carriage of goods by sea; commercialising innovation and law.
By course work, by written examination, or by a combination of these, as prescribed for each course module. The Professional Skills module is assessed through a combination of attendance at and participation in classes, preparatory work, a simulated practical exercise and submission of a final piece of extended writing.
