New Programs in Int'l Economic Law and Int'l Law and Sustainable Development

Strathclyde University Law School in Glasgow, Scotland has confirmed it will launch two new LL.M. programs - one in International Economic Law; and another in International Law and Sustainable Development - beginning in September 2009.

The International and Sustainable Development LL.M. is designed to provide "a solid grounding in the structures, rules and norms of key institutions of global economic governance," and their impact on sustainable development locally and internationally.

Meanwhile, the International Economic Law LL.M. is geared towards students developing careers in international organizations, international law firms, governmental or non-governmental organizations with an international trade and business or commercial law focus.

Both programs also include a "field" dissertation - an "opportunity to put knowledge and skills into practice, and to base the dissertation around real-world issues," and allow students to study non-law subjects (like economics and international management) alongside their law courses.

For more information about these LL.M. programs and the others on offer at Strathclyde, please visit the law school website or their full LLM GUIDE directory profile.
