International Commercial Law
This master’s degree program provides in-depth knowledge in international commercial transactions and enables legal practitioners to represent clients more effectively in a global commercial environment. This part-time summer program typically takes two to five summer sessions to complete at the UC Davis School of Law and other locations abroad. Candidates begin the program by examining the fundamentals of the U.S. legal system, with special emphasis on business and trade law. Students complete the Orientation in U.S.A. Law Program and two of the specialized programs in international commercial law. Specialized programs include international joint ventures, financing international transactions, and global trading systems: substance and dispute resolution. In addition, participants take intensive elective courses with an international perspective designed specifically for the master’s degree program in such areas as securities, intellectual property, comparative law, private international law, anti-trust, and business associations.
