In today’s globalised world, the significance of national boundaries is diminishing and comprehensive knowledge of the law governing international trade and commercial relationships is of critical importance.
This programme enables students to develop an in-depth knowledge of the law and regulations that govern corporate and commercial activities across national borders. It aims to prepare them for responding to the changing and dynamic nature of legal relations between corporations, individuals, and states, and gives them the opportunity to reflect on the private and public dimensions of the legal rules necessary to govern the world economy.
Students on this programme are expected to undertake a substantial dissertation, which is designed to enhance research skills through a detailed investigation in an area of their own choice.
