Overview

Many undergraduate law degrees contain little content about international business law – so if you are a lawyer who wishes to specialise, the International Business Law programme at the University of Essex Online will help distinguish skills amongst legal practitioner peers. 

For those of you in managerial roles whose companies span across national borders, this course will help your understanding of the minutiae of details relating to transnational commercial dealings. And for those who simply want to gain further understanding of the nature of international business law, this course will provide a thorough grounding in the relevant legal topics.

The course will delve into many legal topics including:

  • the general principles of transnational contract law
  • the remit, procedures and operation of the World Trade Organisation
  • competition law and how it is implemented at a national and international level

You will also be able to tailor your course to your interests with a range of optional modules. You will round off your studies by conducting an original research project on the topic of your choice within the field. You will gather data, conduct analysis and create a well-written and thoughtful dissertation on the subject.

Your future

The specialist legal knowledge you will gain is of particular use to those working within roles connected to global commerce, such as a lawyer within an international law firm, a multinational company doing business across borders, a governmental organisation regulating trade, or a research position looking into the future of business. The skills you gain will further enhance your CV to unlock senior role possibilities.

Qualified solicitors or barristers will also be able to use the skills and knowledge gained from studying the course to meet their annual Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements.
