IU McKinney launches LLM in International Trade Law
The Indiana University Robert H McKinney School of Law will be offering an LLM in International Trade Law from autumn/fall 2019.
This will be the seventh track available at IU McKinney’s LLM programs and it has been made possible through the law school's working relationship with World Trade Center (WTC) Indianapolis, an organisation that connects Indiana businesses to a global marketplace through a network of more than 300 World Trade Centers across the world.
IU McKinney and WTC entered into a memorandum of understanding in December 2018, bringing together higher education and business to provide law students with opportunities to build legal skills in the area of international trade and commerce.
IU McKinney Dean, Andrew R Klein, says, “I’m very pleased that IU McKinney’s relationship with World Trade Center Indianapolis has enabled us to offer this opportunity to students. I am particularly proud of our international students, who have provided expertise about their home countries, conducting research for WTC Indianapolis, to the benefit of both.”
Executive Director of the Center for International and Comparative Law at IU McKinney, Professor Frank Emmert, explains, “True to its commitment to provide an innovative and international education at the highest level of quality, the McKinney School is the first law school in the world to enter into a formal collaboration with a World Trade Center and to offer a specialized track in World Trade Law within its Master of Laws program. Students will get a broad range of courses at McKinney to build their knowledge-base and then spend a minimum of six months in an internship at the World Trade Center Indianapolis or one of its member companies. Upon graduation, the newly minted Masters of Laws will be uniquely positioned for a career in international business and trade, with state-of-the-art theoretical knowledge, significant practical experience, and an unmatched network of professional connections. Apply now to secure your place and change your life!”
The other tracks available to LLM students at IU McKinney are American Law for Foreign Lawyers; Corporate and Commercial Law; Health Law, Policy and Bioethics; Intellectual Property Law; International and Comparative Law; and International Human Rights Law.
