International Economic Law

International economic law is a field of international 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 program 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. The program is ideal for legal practitioners as well as governmental representatives, development specialists, economists, political scientists and others working in the field.

This is an increasingly important niche area of international law in which Melbourne Law School has exceptional strengths. The international economic law subjects attract students from all over the world.
