Course description

The LLM International Trade Transactions offers your specialist training in all aspects of international trade regulation, transactional requirements and the problems that threaten the success of trade.

There are a growing number of international trade practitioners all around the world as a result of globalisation. Developing countries require a deepening involvement in the international trade process and the legal structures which underpin it. This means more lawyers need to be educated in this area to help this their development. Globalisation also means that the same result follows in developed countries as trade becomes even more  international.

This course aims to provide you with core knowledge and understanding of the background to international trade, the transactional conditions conductive to its development and the specific and general problems which threaten the success and integrity of individual transactions. It also aims to encourage you to develop research skills in these areas.
