**How will my skills develop?**
If you didn’t study law at undergraduate level, this degree will help you gain an understanding of how law and business intersect within a global context. For those with law qualifications, this course gives you the opportunity to develop advanced legal knowledge and a broad range of business skills. The course is delivered in partnership by our Law School and Business School. This means you will get the best of both worlds, benefiting from a first-class law and business education, which will enhance your employability and allow you to fulfil a variety of roles at a senior level.
Globalisation has made international commercial law increasingly significant. You will begin by examining the basis of the relationship between law and business within this context. In doing so you will gain an appreciation for how a variety of commercial legal disciplines help to regulate markets and enable international business transactions to take place.
You’ll explore current insights and challenges in international commercial law. This will provide you with a comprehensive understanding and a critical awareness of the field. You’ll learn to solve complex legal issues and effectively advise clients or employers in specialist areas, studied as part of your elective modules.
You’ll study The Aston Global Advantage module which focuses on professional development and employability, helping you to apply the key skills that you will gain throughout the year.
You’ll study a fascinating range of topics across international commercial legal practice. For example, you can choose to examine how multinational companies are regulated, the laws they must adhere to in terms of international trade, what happens when a multinational business goes bankrupt or the consequences for organisations found to be engaging in anti-competitive conduct.
How will this course help my career?
We teach established techniques of research and enquiry and you have opportunities to apply these and test your legal understanding and interpretation within real-life business scenarios. In doing this, you will develop the skills required by legal practitioners in a commercial context.
We also provide opportunities to develop your research and writing capabilities, as well as enhancing other transferable skills, such as decision-making, problem-solving and oral communication skills. These are extremely beneficial competencies which are held in high regard by graduate employers.
Our teaching staff have a mix of practical and academic experience. They are highly regarded and widely published academics, who are considered experts in their field, along with those who have enjoyed illustrious careers in legal practice and business with global organisations. You’ll find this range of different perspectives and expertise incredibly valuable.
