This is an overview perspective course, cross-listed for LLB, mixed degrees, LLM, MCL,
MPhil., SJD, PhD and final year undergraduates in disciplines other than law.
The recent dramatic transformation of the international economic legal order is generally
attributed to “globalization”, on the one hand, and liberalization, harmonization and unification
of national policies and laws that affect trade, investment, and financial and commercial
transactions across national borders, on the other hand. Concerns arise as to the coherence and
compatibility of these processes and efforts with respect to national and global economic
development, and overall welfare. This is the domain of international economic law: the law
and policy of relations between national governments concerning the regulation of economic
transactions that have cross‐border effects. The course will broadly introduce those areas of
international law and institutions that have shaped, or are the result of, transformation of the
international economic legal order, under four general themes: international trade, international
development, international financial, and international monetary law. We will cover the
relevant activities of international and regional organizations such as the G20, WTO, IMF,
World Bank, FSB, EU, ASEAN, APEC, and NAFTA.
