This course provides law graduates with the opportunity for advanced learning in key areas of international commercial law, including International Sale of Goods, International Intellectual Property Law, International Corporate Law and Governance, and Advanced Contract Law and Negotiation. Delivery is concentrated on a contextual business bias, and students benefit from the networking and employment prospects offered by a large and dynamic Business School. At the final stage of the study (through the Business Innovation Project) students will be able to choose whether to pursue a traditional research dissertation or a work-based project report based upon employment or a placement experience.
Both in the UK and overseas the internationally focussed LLM is a ‘gold standard’ qualification for entry into the legal profession, as the focus of specialization has increasingly shifted to international legal practice. In the corporate business world, the LLM carries a similar cachet to the Executive MBA, while offering greater specialism in its content. In many European jurisdictions, the LLM is a compulsory prerequisite for entry into the legal profession. Students will take the modules below (four modules and final business innovation project/dissertation) in a sequence dependent on their start date.
- International Law of the Sale of Goods
- International Intellectual Property Law
- International Corporate Law and Governance
- Advanced Contract Law and Negotiation
- Business Innovation Project
