The LLM Corporate Social Responsibility provides a rigorous and intellectually challenging training at an advanced level in all related issues as preparation for, or as an enhancement to, a career in this area. The course is designed to enable both law and non-law graduates to develop a wider understanding of contemporary corporate social responsibility issues thus equipping them with skills which are required in the business world or to further their research interests in their chosen field.

The objectives are: to provide graduates with knowledge, understanding and skills at taught Master’s level, appropriate to careers specialising in areas of corporate governance or social responsibility within both the private or public sectors; to provide an advanced knowledge in the current developments of corporate social responsibility from a broad range of areas of law at a national, regional and international level; to gain an integrated understanding of the social, ethical and environmental issues faced by corporations today and an advanced knowledge on the substantive content and theoretical context of law which has accordingly developed; and to provide the academic foundation for progression to PhD-level study. The course is distinctive in that it explores the topic of corporate social responsibility from a variety of legal and policy perspectives.

The taught component of the course facilitates staged intellectual progress in key areas relevant to corporate social responsibility. This stage consists of eight modules which are taken over two semesters. The modules provide an overview of current developments in corporate social responsibility in various areas of law, business and management. In addition, students are able to develop the relevant practical skills necessary for information retrieval and utilisation, and data collection and analysis in a dedicated legal research methods module.

The culmination of the course is the 10,000-word dissertation which can be completed as a work-based dissertation project in collaboration with external organisations.
