The International Commercial Law programme will enable you to engage in intensive study of specialist international and commercial topics. The international law units can be chosen from topics within the field of private international law and the content of commercial law units includes an international element, such as international trade. The programme will appeal both to students from outside the UK and to students who wish to combine their areas of specialism.
