American University Washington College of Law launches three new LLM programs
American University Washington College of Law (AUWCL) has launched three new LLM programs in International Law.
These three new Master of Laws programs are:
- International Business and Trade Law
- International Arbitration and Business Law
- Gender, International and Comparative Law
The LLM in International Business and Trade Law provides lawyers with in-depth knowledge and practical legal skills in international trade law and policy, with topics including, WTO law, US trade remedies, US economic sanctions and export controls, and bilateral and regional trade agreements. The LLM in International Arbitration and Business Law will train lawyers to become arbitration practitioners – it is one of the few of its kind in the United States. Meanwhile the LLM in Gender, International and Comparative Law is the only one of its kind in the US offering the most robust curriculum in gender and the law and equipping students with the legal and policy skills needed to address challenges facing women and LGBTQ+ people worldwide.
Speaking about these exciting new LLM specialism, Director of International and Comparative Legal Studies at AUWCL, Professor Padideh Ala’i, says, “The three new LLMs reflect AUWCL’s longstanding excellence in international legal education. Our internationally focused faculty bring academic depth to the specialized areas of international trade, business, arbitration, and gender, and the depth of our curriculum allows us to elevate students to the next level of their careers. Our new LLM degrees cater to the growing demands of the global job market for specialised expertise and take advantage our Washington, DC location to create distinct opportunities for LLM students.”
