Head of Law for University of Essex Online, Dr Naila Anwar, says: “The success of the WTO since its establishment in 1995 attracted some of the world’s largest traders such as China (in 2001) and Russia (in 2012). The growing membership of the WTO means growth in global trade (accounting for 98 per cent of global trade). The growth of global trade means increasing demand for individuals with specialist skills and in-depth knowledge in the areas of trade and commerce. The online LLM in International Trade and Commercial Law has been developed to meet this global/ national and international demand for experts in these areas of law.

“I am really delighted to announce the launch of our new LLM International Trade and Commercial Law. We already have a thriving student body progressing through our existing LLB (Hons) course, and we hope to help even more students to forge their way forward into the legal profession with the addition of this postgraduate course. We have worked hard to create an internationally-relevant and thought-provoking syllabus for our learners, and we can’t wait to tutor our first class.”

Academic Director for University of Essex Online, David Dixon, enthuses, “This exciting new addition to the suite of postgraduate programs offered by University of Essex Online will give our students the opportunity to gain an internationally-recognised and well-regarded qualification. We are looking forward to welcoming our current undergraduate students and new students onto the course.”
