Course Description

Today the international market place is increasingly globalised and diffuse. A unique and sophisticated system of trading and related rights and norms has developed through the policy and rule making of global institutions. The course will provide an overview of the philosophical, political and economic context in which these developments have taken place, and a thorough grounding in the key institutions, structures, rules and principles of the world trading system. Furthermore the course offers the opportunity to examine the interplay between other political and civil rights systems. Unique to the programme is the opportunity for LLM students to undertake a field dissertation within a governmental or non-governmental organisation. Project organisations will have an international focus, either in the UK, or more likely, overseas either in northern or southern countries. Students will undertake projects or field work in partnership with professionals in the local organisation centred around a specific area of law - this area of law will form the subject of the dissertation, enabling students to embed their research and experience within a particular local context, based around the identification of real, local issues. Also, these programmes offer students the opportunity to study from a multidisciplinary perspective. Not only will students have the opportunity to select elective classes from other masters programmes in law, but also from related programmes in other departments in order to structure a programme of study that meets their personal and professional objectives.
