Summary

The programme offers an in-depth study of all the different aspects of the contemporary regime of international economic law. Unlike most other programmes, it overcomes the division between the main branches of international economic governance - world trade, investment, and finance - and raises awareness for common themes and challenges facing international economic law in these different areas.

**WHY THIS PROGRAMME**

The core course is designed to provide a bird’s-eye-view of the field of international economic governance and the multiple roles played by international law in that context.

Key areas of focus include the structure of global economic governance, the rules and institutions of world trade, international investment, and international finance.

Drawing on a range of different legal, critical, and interdisciplinary approaches, it aims to provide the students with the opportunity to study at advanced level the various aspects of contemporary international economic regulation in its full normative, political, and historical complexity.

You will benefit from the combined experience of a lecturing team representing a rich diversity of professional and international backgrounds. Theorists and practitioners, litigators and consultants, our lecturers come from more than half-a-dozen countries, including Germany, Canada, Portugal, UK, and Uzbekistan.

The programme is supported by excellent facilities, including two dedicated law libraries, extensive online resources, and access to various official publication databases, such as the European Documentation Centre.

Guest-speaker presentations, an active research seminar series and other extra-curricular events provide you with a unique opportunity to meet international lawyers and academics from around the world, become exposed to some of the most topical discussions shaping the field of international economic law, and to engage with current debates.

**PROGRAMME STRUCTURE**

You will take one core course and three optional courses, at least one of which must fall in the field of either international trade law or international investment law. Courses will be delivered through a combination of lectures and seminars. You will also be required to submit a 15,000 word dissertation on a related topic.

**Optional courses may include**
- EU trade law

**CAREER PROSPECTS**
The rare combination of doctrinal, theoretical, legal-historical, comparative, and policy perspectives which this programme provides will prove highly attractive both to public- and private-sector employers. The programme will be of particular interest to those students interested in pursuing a career in international organisations, government service, advanced research institutions, think-tanks, NGOs, independent consultancy, and academia. Students seeking to pursue a career in legal practice will benefit from the programme's broad approach: they will be able to situate specific legal problems arising in highly practical areas (such as world trade, or investment law) within the broader context of international economic law.
