The SOAS LLM degree is a postgraduate qualification for those who hold an undergraduate degree in law.

A specialist LLM in International Economic Law will be of interest to those who wish to focus on legal aspects of international economic activity.

Students following the SOAS International Economic Law LLM are immersed in one of the youngest and most dynamic fields of international legal theory and practice.

The questions they confront are difficult, urgent and compelling:

  • When we regulate international trade, do we sometimes do more harm than good?
  • What impact do bureaucracy and corruption have on foreign investment levels?
  • What might international institutions do to prevent a future global economic crisis?
  • What changes are China and India bringing to international economic law?
  • What is the impact of economic liberalization on labour law and social welfare ?

Structure

Students who wish to graduate with a specialised LLM are required to take at least three (3.0) units within their chosen specialisation. The following courses are associated with the International Economic Law specialisation:

Please note: Not all courses listed may be available every year.
