International Trade Transactions (LLM)
International trade is a specialist but very important area of law. Whilst specialist, it has considerable numbers of practitioners all around the world and it is growing as a result of globalisation. Developing countries necessarily need more lawyers educated in this area as their development necessarily involves deepening involvement in the international trade process and the legal structures which underpin it. Globalisation also necessarily means that the same result follows in developed countries also for even here, trade is increasingly international.
The LL.M in International Trade Transactions programme requires the study of 120 credits of taught course units, at least 90 credits of which must be within the area of International Trade Transactions.
