Enrolment opens from September 2019, and registration ongoing from June 2019

Course Details
This course will equip you with specialist knowledge of international law as it relates to commercial activities in a global economy. You will examine complementary law and business topics that affect international business practice, and you will graduate with an expert legal and business skill set.

Your core modules will focus on public and private international trade law to deepen your critical understanding of the World Trade Organization rules and how countries trade. The expert knowledge you develop of the European Union rules for the development and operation of supranational markets will provide a firm platform for you to explore the legal regulation of free trade throughout the world.

Your in-depth research project will help you to further specialise your professional knowledge, and your enhanced awareness of the legal rules that apply to contracts for international sale of goods between companies will prepare you to work across borders.

Your dissertation will give you the opportunity to pursue a research interest, helping you to further specialise in your chosen career.
Mode of Study
Distance learning. Online Virtual Learning Experience access. Like the students on campus, you will have the same excellent teaching and learning resources, however you’ll find these online instead of in a lecture theatre.

LCLS(S) will provide further tuition and guidance along with supervision for the whole length of the programme.
