TRAIL+

Be a TRAIL-blazer!

Are you a law graduate looking to take the next step in your career or in academia? If so, you are on the right path. The TRAIL+ programme at the WTI targets students and professionals with a legal background who are interested in specialising in international economic law with cross-disciplinary study of the global economy and trade and investment agreements.

Why the TRAIL+?

The TRAIL+ is a newly-launched advanced Master’s programme in Trade and Investment Law combined with courses in International Law and Economics. This programme is offered at the World Trade Institute in cooperation with the Faculty of Law of the University of Bern. The programme includes more law courses, fewer courses on economics and political science, and less emphasis on practice and application than the WTI’s flagship MILE programme. Upon the successful conclusion of the TRAIL+ programme, the student is awarded an LL.M. in International Trade and Investment Law, as well as a Diploma of Advanced Studies (DAS) in International Law and Economics.
