SOLM263 International Economic Law Clinic (Sem 2 and 3)

This module offers the unique opportunity to work on a real legal project on international economic law of practical importance to a beneficiary. The module is conducted as a legal clinic running over semesters 2 and 3. Students will be grouped in project teams each consisting of a maximum of four students and assigned a project to work on specific questions posed by real beneficiaries who are seeking legal advice on specific problems in international economic law. Under the supervision of an academic supervisor and with the support of professional mentors, each team will prepare written legal memoranda on the assigned problem and present it to the beneficiaries at the end of semester 3. The bulk of the module consists on students' independent work on the project along with meetings with academic supervisors, mentors and beneficiaries as well as workshops on professional skills.

By taking this module you will be part of the tradelab community. Tradelab is a selective network of universities that run clinics to make global economic regulation work for everyone, connecting students and experts to developing countries, SMEs and NGOs to build lasting legal capacity. Queen Mary has been selected as the only UK university to run a tradelab pilot clinic in the academic year 2021-2022.
