The University of Aberdeen in Scotland has launched an LLM in International Trade Law with Professional Skills.
The program is designed for lawyers and civil servants to gain the legal expertise as well as the practical skills needed for international trade negotiation.
Students have the option of undertaking the program over one-year full-time or two-years part-time. Students can begin in either September or January.
Optional courses cover oil and gas law, energy and innovation, as well as some very specific - but highly interesting - topics like international commercial arbitration in the Asia Pacific, and the cultural property issues around art and museums.
This new program will be added to the school's existing LL.M. offering, which includes a General Law program as well as the LL.M. in Criminal Justice, and another in human rights.
Students from within the EU as well as outside are welcome to apply. For application requirements and more details, see the program website.
