What will I learn?

International economic law is a field of law encompassing the conduct of states in international economic relations, as well as the conduct of private parties involved in cross-border economic and business transactions.

The Graduate Diploma in International Economic Law (GDipIntEcoLaw) includes a diverse mix of subjects devoted to this important field of practice and study, including international trade law (such as the World Trade Organization and preferential trade agreements); international investment law; international financial law (including the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund); and international commercial arbitration.

It’s available for both law and non-law graduates and is ideal for legal practitioners, government representatives, development specialists, economists, political scientists and others working in the field.

As a Graduate Diploma in International Economic Law student, you’ll develop an advanced understanding of the complex body of knowledge in the field of international law, including:

  • Customary and treaty-based sources of international economic law
  • Various functional and theoretical bases for organising economic relations at the international level
  • The evolving context in which the processes of and actors within international economic law operate
  • The jurisprudence of the various dispute settlement organs operating in the field.

You’ll also develop skills in critical analysis and the ability to interpret and transmit your ideas to specialist and non-specialist audiences, including clients.
