LLM in Corporate Law

General

Program Description

Programme description

This innovative programme aims to transcend a narrow focus on legal rules and put the study of corporate law in a wider interdisciplinary and comparative framework.

The portfolio of courses offered on the programme allows you to acquire in-depth knowledge of legal, economic, financial and comparative matters covering the entire life-cycle of a corporation.

Programme structure

You must complete 180 credits of study – 60 credits are taken in the compulsory dissertation and the remaining 120 credits are taken in taught courses.

Courses will be taught in seminars, led by members of the Law School academic community and by experienced legal and business practitioners. In some courses, you will be required to deliver individual or group presentations. Entry to some courses depends upon you having studied the relevant topic at the undergraduate level. You will also undertake a dissertation under the supervision of an academic member of staff.

Please note that due to unforeseen circumstances or lack of demand for particular courses, we may not be able to run all courses as advertised come the start of the academic year.

Learning outcomes

On successful completion of the programme, you will have acquired an advanced interdisciplinary knowledge and understanding of business transactions, as well as legal and financial skills that are particularly valuable to businesses, professional practices, and regulatory bodies.

Entry requirements

A minimum UK 2:1 honours degree, or its international equivalent, in law.

Applications from strong candidates with a degree in a related discipline which includes relevant prior study will also be considered, with high achievement in corporate law subjects at degree level and relevant professional experience.

Entry to this programme is competitive. Meeting minimum requirements for consideration does not guarantee an offer of study.
