New taught master programmes in the realm of globalisation at Swansea
The School of Law at Swansea University has received validation for two new taught masters schemes, which will focus on the concept of globalisation and its impact on law and various legal orders.
The global economy is the powerful driving force for the more general globalisation of all sectors of law. The new LLM programme on Law and Globalisation will deal with the emerging global economic and commercial law, global protection of the environment, and aspects of the global protection of the human rights, including international criminal law.
The new MA in Global Orders and Law will focus on the interdisciplinary study of globalisation and the emerging global legal order. The MA programme is open to both law graduates and graduates of other disciplines such as economics, politics and international relations. Both courses will be available from September 2008.
In addition to these two new degrees, the School currently offers four further LLM programmes:
• LLM in International Maritime Law
• LLM in International Commercial Law
• LLM in International Trade Law
• LLM in International Commercial and Maritime Law.
