UNIL has introduced a new postgraduate programme in law (LL.M. in International Business Law) with an interdisciplinary, comparative and practice oriented approach to business law, enabling young lawyers to face the legal challenges in today’s global business environment.
The programme offers the highest quality of teaching in small group settings delivered by an international team of distinguished academics and practitioners. It proposes 5 specialisations (International Business Law and Innovation, International Business Law and Sports, International Business Disputes, International Business Transactions, and International Business Regulation) or a bespoke pick-and-choose programme in International Business Law which enables students to select courses according to their personal interests and needs. A variety of courses offered abroad complement the programme.
Some of the courses, including Business Law & Litigation in Asia, are individually accessible to practitioners who wish to further develop their expertise.
In a global marketplace where trade with Asian countries is increasing, basic knowledge of Asian Business Law is essential. This course covers the legal framework for doing business in Asia from an Asian comparative perspective. It also addresses the important question of how disputes are litigated or arbitrated in Asia. A special focus will be placed on new dispute resolution centres such as Hong Kong and Singapore.
