Program description

Corporate & Commercial Law LLM

Prepare or further your legal career by studying a broad range of commercial modules which highlight issues of practical and contemporary relevance

You can choose from our broad range of corporate and commercial law modules which deal with issues relevant to the highly complex and dynamic corporate and commercial worlds.

You will gain a comprehensive understanding of core issues relating to corporate law and corporate governance, and in intellectual property law. You'll focus on the structure and development of company law both in the United Kingdom and in an international context.

You will also learn about the radical re-shaping of company law in the United Kingdom in 2006. This has impacted on the reform of corporate law in the Commonwealth countries and other jurisdictions, which have modelled their corporate regimes on UK law.

Corporate governance teaches you about the distribution of power within key company constituencies, methods of regulating governance, governance systems across the world, auditors and internal control, and the meaning and importance of good governance with references to stakeholder theory and environmental sustainability.

The course has a highly flexible structure so that you can tailor your learning to suit your interests and career goals.
