With any international trade there is a need to ensure that all formalities are dealt with effectively and risks are managed as much as they can be. International Commercial Law is for you if you want to support and protect business in terms of all areas of trade, different business interpretations in each country and jurisdiction, intellectual property law protection, world trade production and logistics planning, oil and gas and arbitration. Within international property law you also learn about trade mark and brand protection, and cultural property issues as an optional course. You can work in a wide variety of careers in private business within energy, retail, manufacturing, IT and technology, and many other business sectors reliant on international trade to grow their business. You will be responsible for drafting and negotiating contracts within business operations, goods and services and you will have a deep understanding about business.
