The two-year dual degree study programme has been jointly developed by the University of Glasgow in Scotland and Leuphana University of Lüneburg.
Study programme – the aims
Integrating public and private economic law, the programme brings together two areas of law that are often covered independently in legal literature as well as in teaching. This division will be overcome within the framework of this programme to provide students with a holistic approach on international economic law that characterises this area of law in practice. The programme aims to deliver a broad, scientific and profound engagement with the players and structures of international economic law and, as well as to facilitate an additional specialisation in one of the core subjects of international economic law such as Corporate & Financial Law, International Commercial Law, International Competition Law & Policy or Intellectual Property & the Digital Economy. The blend of compulsory modules and electives therefore constitutes a unique feature of the programme enabling students to aquire mainly in-depth knowledge in the various fields of international economic law and the ability to analyse the opportunities and limits of global relationships and international regulations concerning international economic aspects.
On successful completion of the programme, students will be awarded with a Master of Laws Double Degree (LL.M.) in International Economic Law.
Students will be prepared specifically for management positions in multinational companies, as well as advisory postions in both the public and private sector. This will be achieved by means of a comprehensive and in-depth analysis of the international economic law and its embedding in national law, in combination with a focus on a core area of international economic law and the acquisition of interdisciplinary skills, particularly in language and intercultural competences. The different opportunities for specialisation thus allow emphasis on various professional fields as well as for professional careers in academic contexts in research, teaching and administration.
