The programme brings students from all over the world together. It combines private and public international economic law and offers a holistic approach to this area of law.

It will enable you to acquire profound knowledge in different fields of international economic law, a basic idea of the functions of international relations and markets, and the skills to analyse the chances and risks of global relationships and international economic regulations.
