International Commercial Law

Economies in today's world are increasingly interconnected, posing new legal challenges in areas such as the regulation of international commerce and trade matters, the legal mechanisms and frameworks supporting cross-border commercial activities (including e-commerce), and governance in private
 commercial bodies, as well as the use and enforcement of trade and competition rules. This course offers you an insight into the processes by which international regulation is created and enforced from the perspective of commercial and economic actors (including individuals, corporate bodies and other enterprise forms). The focus is on crossborder transactions between companies and individuals. You study many different aspects of international commercial law, thereby gaining a strong, and broad, theoretical foundation, while also being able to choose from a range of options. It also offers you an exciting opportunity to understand the roles of international and domestic institutions governing the regulation of trading and commercial activities, and the role of both public and private actors in the formation of trade regulation and laws, including the concepts of international commercial law (lex mercatoria), as well as the rules that regulate private commercial activities between businesses and individuals from different countries.
