University of Liverpool in London

Course Introduction

The programme has been established by our Law School and Management School in response to growing demands from national and international employers for law and economics experts who can make informed choices in governance, competition and regulatory compliance issues increasingly facing firms in the international business environment. During the programme, you will work on analysing and solving the economic and legal problems which many organisations encounter from increasing global competition and at times opposing and clashing regulatory demands emanating from the national, EU and transnational legal systems. The programme will also familiarise you with economic dynamics underlying the legal and management choices made by firms. Our programme is also sensitive to global justice issues caused by the increasing globalisation of business practices and the increasing competitive pressures facing businesses.
