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.
