The International Trade and Commercial Law programme at the University of Essex Online will explore the key elements of international trade, while optional modules allow you to modify the course content to your career goals and interests.
The key topics within the course include:
- the remit, procedures and operation of the World Trade Organisation
- competition law and how it is implemented at a national and international level
- the main issues that arise in international sales of goods transactions
You will develop skills in critical thinking, time management and research skills alongside this important legal knowledge. After finishing your PG Dip, you are able to continue on to our full LLM International Trade and Commercial Law.
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.
