Course summary

Overview There are few states around the world that don’t engage in international trade, and in an increasingly economically interdependent world, the importance of an efficient and effective legal framework for the facilitation of international trade and investment is widely acknowledged. Studying international trade law (rather than national trade law) is essential if you intend to enter a career in trade or in a trade-related government department. By becoming an expert in this specialist area of law, you will build a firm foundation in the law and legal practice in this challenging and complex area, gaining a clear understanding of why a predictable and clear legal framework is essential for efficient and effective cross-border trade. This course is ideal, therefore, if you have an analytical mind and a curiosity about how law can assist world trade. You will learn to think from an international, rather than national, legal perspective, as well as developing your research and analytical skills. Our LLM International Trade Law graduates are highly regarded by employers, both inside and outside the legal profession, and we have well established relationships with many local, regional, national and international law firms, some of which offer exclusive placements to UEA students. About This Course Study at UEA Law School and you will be joining a School that excels in its dedication to offering intellectually diverse, varied and stimulating postgraduate courses, supported by a wide range of subjects and modules taught by leading experts. The School is based in Earlham Hall, a building of significant historical importance, built in 1642 but recently refurbished, where most of the postgraduate LLM teaching takes place – it will therefore be your home for your period of study. Each year we welcome around 100 postgraduate students from a wide variety of geographical and personal backgrounds, and it is the vibrant and dynamic community they create that completes the student experience. We place significant emphasis on choice, building your confidence, maximising your employability, and developing adaptable transferable skills. We believe small-group teaching at postgraduate level is important, and we aim to keep class sizes low, offering you an unparalleled personal teaching environment with access to our team of international specialists drawn from academia and practice. We also believe practical and careers experience is extremely valuable, and we have developed a programme of opportunities tailored specifically to the needs of our postgraduate students, including placement opportunities for both UK and overseas students. During your course, you can apply for one of UEA Law School’s internship placements. You can also attend careers panels, commercial awareness workshops, mock job interviews, our annual Law Careers Fair and many other events organised by the UEA Law School and the Careers Service. Law Masters (LLM) degrees are increasingly seen by employers to distinguish applicants. Our graduates have progressed to a wide variety of successful careers, from private practice to government legal departments and international organisations, and from universities to industry and commerce.
