International trade is a complex and ever evolving area, requiring practitioners to be at the cutting edge of the subject.
On the LLM International Trade Law you will acquire a wide range of knowledge on issues relevant to international trade, such as international sale contracts, carriage of goods and international dispute resolution and in areas such as international finance, intellectual property, international energy law and transnational competition law. You will gain specialist legal knowledge within a practical context, whilst developing expertise in these areas and enhancing your research skills.
With maximum flexibility in mind, this distance learning course allows you to work towards your LLM in stages. To access the LLM you will have previously completed the awards of Postgraduate Certificate and Postgraduate Diploma.
Students are required to pass three modules: Legal Research, International Sale Contracts, and Carriage of Goods. There are no examinations for each module. Instead, students research and write a 3,000 word essay on a topic selected by the module tutor. They graduate with the PgCert International Trade Law and may, if they wish, continue on to study for the PgDip International Trade Law the next academic year.
The Distance Learning (DL) PgCert/PgDip/LLM International Trade Law is designed for business persons, recent law graduates, and practicing lawyers who may wish to gain more in-depth knowledge of international trade law in order to enhance their career prospects. The course is designed for students from any country as the content of the modules that are non-English law based may be used by business persons and lawyers in any legal jurisdiction world-wide. The focus is on private international law and business. The course is accredited by the Bar Standards Board (BSB) and the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) credits.
The usual entry requirement for the Certificate stage is one of the following: a degree in law; a degree incorporating law elements or a joint honours degree incorporating law; a non-law degree with appropriate work experience; a comparable professional qualification. Candidates without a degree or equivalent but with suitable work related experience may also exceptionally be considered.
