The Postgraduate Diploma in International Business Law enables law graduates to further their legal education by gaining a systematic understanding of the critical issues at the forefront of key areas of global trade. The programme affords students a wide range of interesting and engaging modules, with an international focus, aimed at encouraging critical thinking and developing specialised, detailed knowledge and understanding of global business.

Teaching is delivered by means of small class lectures, in-class simulations, workshops and master classes. In addition to the modules, the School works with leading academics and practitioners who provide seminars in various fields of law throughout the academic year.

We partner with leading international law firms such as Matheson and A & L Goodbody on several initiatives. We also offer students the opportunity to apply for our postgraduate placement module, which gives successful applicants the chance to work part-time for one semester at one of our partner organisations. We have partnerships with a broad range of organisations across the public and private sector, including the Irish Council for Civil Liberties, the Irish Penal Reform Trust, Forsa, PrivacyEngine and Alcohol Action Ireland.
