International law is an increasingly important field of study and practice. Never before has international law taken such a central position in public debates. The regulation of financial markets, environmental protection, the management of migrations or the prosecution of war criminals are all areas in which international law plays a central role.

International law does not only affect the behaviour of states and intergovernmental institutions; neither is it a discipline of diplomats, academics and philosophers. International law today dominates the activity of transnational corporations, NGOs and individuals, from footballers to victims of human rights violations. As a result, governments, international institutions, NGOs, businesses and law firms are increasingly looking for individuals capable of dealing with complex issues of transnational law.... [-]

The two-year dual degree study programme focuses on international economic law and has been jointly developed by the University of Glasgow in Scotland and Leuphana University of Lüneburg.

BACKGROUND AND AIMS

Integrating public and private economic law, the programme brings together two areas of law that are often covered independently in legal literature as well as in teaching. This division will be overcome within the framework of this programme to provide students with a holistic approach to the international economic law that characterizes this area of law in practice. The programme aims to deliver a broad, scientific and profound engagement with the players and structures of international economic law (first study year in Lüneburg) and, as well as to facilitate an additional specialisation in one of the core subjects of international economic law such as Corporate & Financial Law, International Commercial Law, International Competition Law & Policy or Intellectual Property & the Digital Economy (second study year in Glasgow). The blend of compulsory modules and electives, therefore, constitutes a unique feature of the programme enabling students to acquire... [-]
