Course Summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

Designed to be as flexible as possible to meet your needs, this course and all assessments are delivered entirely online with no live classes for you to attend.

This course will equip you with specialist knowledge of international law as it relates to commercial activities in a global economy. You will examine complementary law and business topics that affect international business practice, and you will graduate with an expert legal and business skill set.

Your core modules will focus on public and private international trade law to deepen your critical understanding of the World Trade Organization rules and how countries trade. The expert knowledge you develop of the European Union rules for the development and operation of supranational markets will provide a firm platform for you to explore the legal regulation of free trade throughout the world.

Your in-depth research project will help you to further specialise your professional knowledge, and your enhanced awareness of the legal rules that apply to contracts for international sale of goods between companies will prepare you to work across borders.

Your dissertation will give you the opportunity to pursue a research interest, helping you to further specialise in your chosen career.

As a student of Leeds Law School, you will be able to access a wide range of law textbooks online for free through Law Trove, a subscription-only service offered by Oxford University Press.

You will put your specialist legal knowledge into business and commercial context to enhance your understanding and analysis of the law.

The University's Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) will enable you to learn when it suits your schedule. You will be able to access the School's guest speaker series digitally so you can benefit from the speakers' professional insights.

TEACHING & LEARNING

Independent study is a crucial part of learning at university and you will be required to undertake many hours of self-directed research and reading, and preparation and writing of assessments. Your course is delivered through a number of modules, which will help you to plan your time and establish a study routine. Outside of your lectures, workshops and tutorials, a range of support is available to assist with your independent study. Our subject-specific librarians will be on hand to direct you to the specialist learning and study-skill resources. You’ll also be assigned an academic advisor to give you tailored feedback and support.

Our silver status in the latest Teaching Excellence Framework, reflects our commitment to deliver high-quality teaching, learning and outcomes for our students.
