Most LLM International Trade Law programs have three elements: modules, essays and a dissertation. In the majority of institutions, students are required to take the two compulsory 'core' modules. Generally speaking, a module lasting one term is a half module and one lasting two terms is a full module; a non-law module that lasts three terms, however, is worth one full module.
