The complexity of modern international transactions requires lawyers with knowledge across national legal systems with an enormous array of analytical, conceptual, professional and writing skills.

The LL.M in International Business Law degree enables law graduates to further their legal education by gaining a systematic understanding of the critical issues at the forefront of select areas of international business law. And this thanks to high academics and legal practitioners and officials of trade missions and international organizations.
