Comments about Master International Economic Law - At the institution - London - Greater London
The course is centred on the needs of the modern professional lawyer working or intending to work in an international and business environment. The course of legal study is set in a broad context while giving you a detailed knowledge and depth of understanding. Tuition is through seminars for which you will be expected to come prepared and willing to contribute to a discussion. Participation will help you develop analytical, critical, communication and research skills useful not only for your studies but on which you can build in your future career. A compulsory one-week foundation programme precedes the first semester to provide you with a foundation in common law and EC legal principles, skills of information technology, legal writing, library research and examination technique.
Normally a UK or overseas degree in law of at least lower second class or its equivalent. Alternatively, a non-law degree plus a professional legal qualification. Prior certificated learning may be given credit.
