Program description

International Commercial Law (Taught)

Our LLM International Commercial Law programme is one of our most popular and long established LLM programmes and is respected by top international commercial law firms.

The programme is designed to meet the needs of students and lawyers who wish to study commercial law from an international perspective with emphasis placed on international conventions and agreements and their practical application.

Commercial law in a fast-paced globalised economy presents both challenges and opportunities. Expert lawyers are needed to meet challenges and seek opportunities, particularly when giving advice that can have significant financial consequences.

The LLM International Commercial Law programme is very flexible and offers a wide range of modules which provide you with the ability to customise the programme to meet your own professional and/or employment needs or interests. Example modules include Commercial Arbitration, Comparative Corporate Governance, International Commercial Maritime Law and Insurance Law.

Admission requirements

This course is suitable for graduates in Law wishing to study commercial law at an advanced level and in its international context. The course is suitable for UK and overseas students, and for practitioners.

Qualification

What skills will I practise and develop?

You are expected to assume a greater responsibility for your education as you undertake your postgraduate studies. Through the LLM, you will acquire and develop a range of valuable skills, both those which are discipline specific and more generic employability skills. During the program you will be able to extend your communication and presentation skills, both oral and written. You will also be able to develop collaborative skills, take leadership roles and enhance skills of disciplined and independent study.

You will be encouraged to work independently to seek out legal materials for yourself, to read and analyse these materials critically and to present structured and reasoned argument under the guidance of your tutors and supervisors. You will be provided with training in postgraduate research skills to develop your independent legal analysis, research and writing.

You will have the opportunity to develop wider employability skills through participation in the School’s Law in Action pro-bono schemes run with partner organisations, in which student volunteers assist real people in their dealings with the law. The schemes currently include:

  • Law in Justice: the Innocence Project, (dealing with alleged miscarriages of justice).
  • Law in Healthcare: the NHS Continuing Healthcare Scheme, (challenges to NHS healthcare funding assessments).
  • Law in Sport: the Rugby Union Project – (providing legal advice and legal newsletters to rugby clubs).

Continuing studies

Students successfully completing the LLM programme may have the opportunity to continue their legal study through the School’s PhD programme or through the Centre for Professional Legal Studies professional programmes (the Legal Practice Course or Bar Professional Training Course).
