International Economic Law (intensive)

This programme enables you to tailor your studies to your professional and research interests. You choose 1 out of 2 critical pathways, electing to combine the study of international economic law with either finance and global markets or with justice and development. Both pathways draw on cutting-edge critical research to examine contemporary issues and problems.

Entry requirements

Good second-class honours degree in law or a related discipline (see below). We welcome other relevant qualifications and appropriate professional training and experience.

If you have a first degree in a subject other than law, or if you want to refresh pre-existing legal knowledge and skills, you might consider completing a Pre-Sessional Course in Law and Legal Method, such as the one offered by SOAS. This intensive 2-week course runs during the daytime in September. It is designed primarily for those who do not already possess a law degree and provides an introduction to law, legal method and associated skills and techniques.
