Program description

This programme goes beyond the traditional vision given in national legal systems and focuses on the new demands that globalisation and the growth in international trade place on lawyers.

Globalisation and the growth in international trade place new demands on lawyers around the world, increasingly leading them to approach the law in an integrated fashion, going beyond the traditional vision in which "the law" is found in a given national legal system. For instance, they must advise and assist clients regarding a plurality of legal systems and reconcile the legal requirements of their "home country" with those of other jurisdictions. Similarly, at different levels of public administration - international, European, national, and sub-national -, there is an increasing need for lawyers who are familiar with the international and European law concerning trans-national activities. This programme aims to prepare students to meet those demands.

Program Objectives
The International Business Law programme aims to provide students with a better knowledge and understanding of key subjects such as business law, commercial law, competition law and economic regulation. The emphasis lies on an integrated knowledge of the various fields of law and levels of jurisdiction, together with neighbouring academic disciplines, especially economics.
