International Commercial Law

Founded in the ancient silk and spice routes, international trade and commerce has spread to become the most significant activity of any modern economy. The provision of goods and services in other countries increased dramatically in the second half of the 20th century, and today continues to reveal new markets, products and commercial practices. Our LLM in International Commercial Law focuses on the legal regulation from the perspective of a common law jurisdiction, and the challenges presented through membership of the international and European communities.
