Course Description

International trade law is the combination of domesticnational law and public international law that applies to transactions of goods or services that cross national boundaries. Certain multilateral treaties play an important role in this fi eld, dealing with dispute resolution and the enforcement of resulting adjudications. This area of law is now an independent field of study as most governments now participate in world trade through membership of the World Trade Organization (WTO). The main distinction between this and commercial law is that the later deals with transactions between companies and individuals, whilst trade law deals with those between private and public sectors within different countries. This course is designed to give you the international and regional legal framework within which international trade operates, supported by specialist modules in public policy, economics, regulation of contracts, managing intellectual assets, the resolution of disputes and corporate social responsibility. This course is not solely focused on academic outcomes we also understand the importance of soft or professional skills within this industry and therefore look to develop your interpersonal abilities in relation to communication, presentation, team working, leadership and problem-solving. We encourage you to share and draw on your own personal views, professional backgrounds and experiences during your regular group sessions. You will be taught through a mixture of short lectures, seminars, external speakers, group and individual research to explore relevant issues on set topics.
