Overview

The new LLM in International Commercial Law gives you specialist knowledge of the regulation of international commerce, and a thorough understanding of the broader social, economic and political contexts which shape modern commercial law and practice.

The course offers a wide range of modules that are contemporary, academically rigorous and skills oriented. You’ll gain core knowledge of the framework and regulatory environment of modern commerce whilst having the flexibility to tailor your degree to suit your particular interests and career aspirations by choosing from a range of specialist commercial law modules (and optional modules from the School of Management).

Whatever your choice, your studies will examine key contemporary issues such as developments in information technology, free trade and trade protectionism, Brexit, and sustainability.

Programme structure

The modules for this course can be found in the latest programme specification.

An intensive 2-week induction at the beginning of the course ensures that all students, including those from non-law and/or international backgrounds are taught the core concepts and academic skills necessary to achieve the learning outcomes.

Students take 180 credits of modules comprising a taught element of 120 credits, and a 60 credit dissertation.

Students will be required to take 40 credits of core modules covering subjects on Principles of Regulation and Enforcement; and Sustainable Development Law in Business and Society which will explore core themes and provide the necessary background and wider context of the modern environment within which businesses operate and their regulation.
