International Economic Law LLM

Overview

The International Economic Law LLM is an advanced course of study which will provide you with an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the global economy and its legal framework.

There has never been a more important time to understand the global economy: global value chains where goods are made and traded across the world, investment flows that stimulate economic growth and destabilis domestic policies, regional politics pursued through shared economic institutions with neighbours, and international arbitration and dispute settlement challenging the dynamics between individuals and the State, betwee North and South, and between private and public power, are all at the forefront of contemporary concerns.

This programme provides you with a theoretical and doctrinal knowledge of the legal and institutional frameworks which govern the global economy. You will examine the law and institutions of the global economy in their international, regional, and national settings and examine the pressing contemporary challenges in the global economy.



Why the School of Law?

Long history of legal education

We combine over a hundred years’ teaching experience with modern approaches to learning. Alumni include judges of the House of Lords, Court of Appeal, High Court and County Court, members of Parliament and legal practitioners, as well as accountants, social workers and bankers, who continue to make an important contribution to the learning experience and career prospects of our students. The first female High Court judge in the country was a Liverpool Law graduate.

Developing professionalism

Our students have the opportunity to develop their professional skills through the activities of the School’s Pro-bono Law Clinic. The Clinic is operated by the Law School in association with members of the local legal community and enables students to enjoy the professional experience of dispensing legal advice to real clients, under the guidance and supervision of Law School staff and practising members of the profession.

Mentoring

We also offer a Law School Mentoring Scheme, whereby students are assigned to a local barrister or solicitor who will act as their mentor. The mentor will provide careers advice and assistance to their mentees on a personal and individual basis. This is in addition to the wider careers advisory programme run by the Law School and the University.

Leading experts

Academic staff are leading experts in their fields and research feeds into teaching at a postgraduate level, keeping students informed of the latest developments.

Supportive environment

Pastoral care is very important in the School, and it aims to provide a supportive environment in which students can flourish.
