International Commercial Law with Dissertation offers you a highly employable range of knowledge due to the depth and breadth of courses you will study at Aberdeen. You cover commercial arbitration, contract law, intellectual property law, international law, GATT, environmental liability, company law and insolvency law.

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. You may also be required to go overseas and work long hours at times when you are busy. This is an area of law with immense variety in it and diversity.

After graduation you have a wide range of employment options available as you can generalise and use your skills to support businesses large and small or work in consultancy across business. You may decide to work in a niche area. Your knowledge and analysis skills will be in demand to support global business to succeed.
