International Commercial Law

International Commercial Law is one of the most popular, challenging, and relevant areas of law to study at postgraduate level. Our faculty includes some of the most respected international names in the field, including the authors of leading practitioner and student texts and editors of important journals. We are confident that Exeter is the best possible environment in which to study the exciting, fast-paced, and lucrative commercial world, including subjects like corporate finance, international trade, intellectual property, energy and the environment.

European Law

This specialism is designed to give students the opportunity to study the constitutional issues which arise from the concept of the European Union, including law making and the relationship between the EU and Member States. We provide modules which examine the substantive law of the EU, and the way in which that law has been implemented in English law. We also provide an optional study trip to visit the institutions of the EU.

Intellectual Property Law

The LLM in Intellectual Property Law allows students to study in depth the substantive areas of law which make up intellectual property. Much of the law is derived from EU measures, and the modules are taught from both a domestic and EU perspective. Exeter is one of the very few universities in the UK able to offer this programme.

International Human Rights Law

This specialism has been specifically developed to allow you to construct a programme appropriate to private practice or public employment in the field of international human rights law. An important element of the programme is a study trip to Geneva to gain first-hand experience of the work of the United Nations. During the trip you will have the opportunity to attend committee sessions, joining the delegation, NGOs and committee members in the committee chambers.

Maritime Law

The LLM in Maritime Law is designed specifically for students who wish to study shipping and international trade law in detail. The modules are particularly suited to students who intend to pursue careers in chartering, trade and marine insurance (including Protection and Indemnity Clubs). English law is widely adopted in other jurisdictions, so a study of English law is particularly important.
