LLM in International Trade and Commercial Law

The LLM in International Trade and Commercial Law provides the opportunity to study some of the most important aspects of international trade and commercial law.

This course includes the opportunity to study international trade law, international investment law, international commercial arbitration, international labour law or international corporate governance.

It is ideally suited to students from a law, business, management, politics or other social science background, offering an opportunity to explore this dynamic area of law.

The skills and knowledge offered are particularly useful if you want to work in law, import-export, insurance, investment, shipping and freight, commodities, or intellectual property. It would also appeal to those who intend to pursue careers in international and national trade, and marketing bodies, as well as in government and academic posts.

Teaching learning and assessment

A wide diversity of teaching methods are employed throughout the LLM courses in order to provide a high-quality learning experience. These include lectures, seminar discussions, individual and small group tutorials, case studies, and group and individual presentations. Particular emphasis is placed on skills training, with opportunities provided to acquire and practise legal reasoning as well as research and IT skills. Assessment methods include coursework, and individual and group presentations.

Career prospects

Graduates from the LLM succeed across an impressive range of careers from policy makers and human rights activists through to high‐flying diplomats and commercial lawyers.

LLM staff can advise you and direct you to possible careers and employers depending on your particular needs and ambitions. Depending on your existing legal qualifications, you may wish to take additional legal training at the Oxford Institute of Legal Practice.

Entry requirements

Students will normally be required to have (or to be expecting) a good honours degree, or an equivalent degree awarded by a university outside the United Kingdom. The degree may be in law or in a related discipline. We welcome applications from both law and non-law graduates.

Students new to the academic study of law will be advised to read a number of recommended texts by way of induction before they begin the course. Students are also encouraged to attend the induction sessions provided in the week prior to the beginning of the course.
