LLM in International Economic Law

Format: Campus

Program Description:

International Economic Law is a rapidly developing area of international law concerned principally with international trade, investment, finance and banking. The course aims to provide a theoretical and practical understanding of the regulatory framework of the international trading system as well as addressing a range of other legal issues arising from different kinds of international business transactions. We begin by providing you with a general understanding of International Law in semester one. In semester two you can choose to focus on more general questions of governance through study of the World Trade Organisation or to focus on a range of international business transactions, international investment, banking and/or arbitration. One of a suite of LLM programmes offered by the Law Department at Oxford Brookes, the LLM in International Economic Law draws students from around the world, providing you with the opportunity to explore the pressing international economic issues of the day in a truly international environment. The skills and knowledge gained will equip you for a career not only in law, but also in fields such as business, trade, finance, banking, shipping or marketing. A major part of this degree is research orientated. All the members of the LLM Course Team are active researchers and encourage students to become involved in their respective areas of research by including aspects of their research in the courses they teach.
