This course is designed to give you a critical understanding of international law as it relates to commercial activities in a global economy. It allows you to examine complementary law and business issues which affect international business practice. The programme aims to offer a platform for professional careers where legal expertise in cross-border business, informed by commercial awareness, is essential.
The programme is made up of core legal modules and electives. The electives cover both legal and international business subjects. The inclusion of European law topics with international law subjects allows you to examine how law influences the development of supranational markets built up from a number of independent states. The European Union modules provide a model for exploring the legal regulation of 'free-trade' areas elsewhere in the world. There is also a dissertation, which gives you the opportunity to pursue an international business law research interest in some detail, thus increasing your specialisation.

The advantage of this course is that it does not approach the topic of law in isolation, but seek to provide a business and commercial context to assist the understanding and evaluation of the way the law functions. There is an induction programme in legal skills and methods at the start of the course, which can make this course of interest to non-law graduates as well as those who already hold degrees in law.
