“It is patently clear to me that my LLM in International Trade and Investment Law was a pivotal factor in being employed in a government business unit in the first place and that without the comprehensive education I received in the LLM programme the challenges in managing the PPP sub-programme would have been insurmountable.”

- LLM Alumnus

"I am really satisfied with the course. It made me see the world in a new light. Now I am confident that I can represent my country in any multilateral trade negotiation. I can really contribute something tangible to my country and the continent at large.”

- MCom Alumnus

Funding for the programme from 2002 - 2009 Trade and Investment Law was a pivotal factor in being employed in a government business unit in the first place and that without the comprehensive education I received in the LLM programme the challenges in managing the PPP sub-programme would have been insurmountable.”


“This LLM program is indeed unique in the way it enhances resource development and capacity building in the field of international trade and investment law. It offers students cutting-edge scholarship and provides them with a solid foundation for fresh and innovative thinking about international trade, investment, intellectual property and other related subjects. Its greatest strength is the extremely high caliber of the students that it enrols and the diversity and backgrounds of its faculty.”
