The LLM International Commercial and Competition Law degree is a unique interdisciplinary programme which examines the issues, concepts and principles that underpin the substantive law, and promotes understanding of the economic, social and political forces that continue to shape competition law development.
The number of countries with competition (antitrust) laws has increased from 31 in 1985 to over 100 in 2012, creating the need for legal specialists to practice in law firms, enforce policy in competition authorities and teach in universities. This LLM is ideally suited to those working or intending to work in the area of competition law.
The LLM International Commercial and Competition Law is offered over one year full-time, or two years part-time.
