Program Description

BA Commercial Law (Hons)

Westminster International University in Tashkent

Bachelor of Arts (Honours) Commercial Law is a three-yearfull timecourse delivered at WIUT. It consists of subject areas found on an English law degree taught at the University of Westminster (London). Recent years have witnessed the globalisation of trade and investment, the emergence of new markets, increasing trans-border merger and acquisition activity, and the growing convergence of trade, finance and global corporate governance. Modules for the BA in Commercial Law deal with the global and regional regulation of international trade, and corporate law.

Law is a subject where you can develop a range of skills and explore many aspects of human life. Studying Law as an undergraduate gives you the chance to sharpen your mind, strengthen your understanding and deepen your experience across the full range of humanities and social sciences. You acquire both breadth of understanding and depth in the areas that interest you most.

Law should therefore appeal to those who want to develop both abstract thinking and practical problem-solving. And it's easy to see why you don't have to become a lawyer just because you've done a Law degree; many choose not to. A Law degree can give you the skills to be a successful lawyer, but also a successful producer, politician, manager, journalist, police officer or almost any other profession that requires intellectual strength combined with a practical approach to the world.
