Assessment for Year 1

You will experience a variety of assessment methods, but with a particular focus on coursework: We believe this enables you to best demonstrate attainment of the learning objectives and therefore enhances your performance, and thus aids your successful completion of your Masters degree.

Your core 'Foundations of International Commercial Law' module also has an assessed Group Project element where you will work in groups, preparing a group report and giving an assessed presentation.

Throughout your course you will be given guidance on your work and constructive feedback to help you improve. This feedback will be on both your formative and summative assessments and can be discussed with your Academic Advisor and your module organiser.

Important Information

Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring, review and update of modules. Where this activity leads to significant (but not minor) changes to programmes and their constituent modules, the University will endeavour to consult with students and others. It is also possible that the University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff. In some cases optional modules can have limited places available and so you may be asked to make additional module choices in the event you do not gain a place on your first choice. Where this is the case, the University will inform students.

There are few states around the world that don’t engage in international trade, so studying international trade law (rather than national trade law) is essential if you intend to enter a career in trade or in a trade-related government department. By becoming an expert in this specialist area of law, you will build a firm foundation in the law and legal practice in this challenging and complex area, gaining a clear understanding of why a predictable and clear legal framework is essential for efficient and effective cross-border trade. You will learn to think from an international, rather than national, legal perspective, as well as developing your research and analytical skills. Our LLM international trade law graduates are highly regarded by employers, both in and outside the legal profession, and we have well-established relationships with many local, regional, national and international law firms, some of who offer exclusive placements to UEA students.
