About Law and Economics, PG Cert - at Centre for Commercial Law Studies, Queen Mary, University of London (QMUL)

The PGCert in Law and Economics is offered by the Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS). This specialist programme will train in Law and Economics, an interdisciplinary topic which draws from both arenas.  The programme utilises different teaching technics to challenge students.  It is designed for anyone with an academic background in Law or Economics.

  • Taught by academics from the Institute for Global Law, Economics and Finance (IGLEF), a forum for interdisciplinary study and research in the areas of law, economics and finance.

The programme involves two core interdisciplinary modules focusing on Law and Economics.  These modules are complemented with modules in law, theoretical and applied economics to provide you with the necessary tools to analyse various legal frameworks that shape markets.  You will select from taught modules from both law and economics, enabling you to focus on your interest and gear your qualification toward your desired career trajectory. You will select these modules during a comprehensive two-week induction period where the teaching staff will provide you with an overview of their content.
