Program Description

  • International Corporate & Commercial Law LLM
  • International Financial & Commercial Law LLM

Develop your global legal career with an online LLM from The Dickson Poon School of Law – one of the world’s leading law schools.

Our LLM courses are 100% online, and they provide an opportunity to study some of the most interesting aspects of law at a time of great change.

Legal practice is constantly evolving in response to a world that is itself undergoing rapid cultural advances.

With our online LLM courses, you’ll explore real-world examples to deepen your understanding of how this transformation is reflected in financial practices and the way we do business, as well as the legal structures that govern them.

If you’re a lawyer wishing to enhance your understanding of commercial law without taking a career break you can do so with either an International Corporate & Commercial Law LLM or an International Financial & Commercial Law LLM from King’s College London.

On our online international LLM courses, you’ll enjoy:

  • Flexibility to study without taking a career break. Our course is 100% online – all you need is a computer and an internet connection to earn your degree.
  • The freedom to study on your own terms. With six entry points throughout the year, you can fit your studies around your busy personal and professional life.
  • Smaller class sizes, meaning you get more support from Teaching Fellows and international leaders in the field.

You will also have a choice of two streams:

  • International Corporate & Commercial Law LLM, which explores corporate law’s place in a complex and ever-changing business landscape.
  • International Financial & Commercial Law LLM, with a focus on the legal structures that govern our financial world.
