On this course, you will study a theoretical and practical introduction to the main legal issues arising from the globalisation of the world economy. You will examine both the wider issues of governance and regulation, and specific legal issues arising from various types of international business transactions.

The course also develops your understanding of and asks you to consider legal implications of the changing roles of international economic institutions in both global and regional contexts. You will study legal aspects of the various forms of international business transactions, from the simple international sales contract to more complex arrangements such as joint ventures and project finance.

Teaching

You will be taught by academics who are recognised subject experts with UK and international experience. As well as teaching, most are involved in producing leading research, often providing expert advice to outside bodies.

How the course will be taught will depend on the modules you opt to take, but you can expect a mixture of lectures, seminars and group work.

You will take a selection of modules totalling 120 CATS followed by a 10,000 word dissertation worth 60 CATS. All our modules are worth 20 CATS and run for one term. Modules will be taken during terms one and two, leaving you term three and the summer to complete your dissertation.  If you choose to study part-time, this will be split over two years of study.

Assessment 

The course incorporates a wide and varying range of assessment methods, which may include essays, examinations, portfolios, presentations and the dissertation.

We regard feedback as a vital part of the assessment process. We seek to help you reach your full potential by identifying the strengths and weaknesses of your work and the actions needed to develop your understanding. You will be given feedback after your assessments each term
