International Trade Law

This course is designed to give students interested in careers in international trade or in trade-related government departments a firm introduction to both the law and practice in this challenging and complex area; although the modules studied on the course deal with individual aspects of the law relating to international trade (for example, the law relating to international sales and the carriage of goods by sea), a full understanding cannot be gained without a firm knowledge and understanding of the international harmonisation efforts and consideration of how the subjects inter-relate; this course is specifically designed to achieve these aims.

Entry requirements

Applicants should have a good undergraduate degree in law or, exceptionally, in a related subject from a recognised higher education institution in the UK or overseas; relevant employment experience is taken into account; applications from those wishing to return to academic study to further their knowledge, or those planning to study for a degree while remaining in full-time employment are encouraged; international students should provide evidence of their proficiency in English at IELTS: 6.5 overall (minimum 6.0 in each component) or equivalent.

Course modules

Modules include: Foundations of international commercial law; legal skills and research; supervised dissertation; international law; international banking and finance; information technology law; internet law.

Sponsorship information

Scholarships are available for UK, EU and international students; these are awarded on the basis of academic merit.
