The emphasis of this Masters' programme is on the three key themes within eCommerce – hardware, software and business considerations.

Students will undertake a range of tasks associated with eCommerce in organisations, and will enjoy developing sophisticated solutions to eCommerce problems.

Course Overview

e-Commerce is now a mature industry in the UK and covers a wide range of skills. As well as technical skills, this area also covers marketing, advertising, sales order processing and customer service.

This programme is aimed at providing graduates with the knowledge and skills to enable them to satisfy the demands of employers by developing and enhancing their use of ICT, particularly in the area of eCommerce. This programme has a strong focus on data analysis and other factors that affect eCommerce such as law, marketing/social media, privacy, intellectual property, etc. Graduates will use their expertise to manage teams that design, implement, test and maintain innovative eCommerce based solutions in contemporary organisations.

Modules

Part 1:
-Data Mining (20 credits)
-Leadership and Management (20 credits)
-Managing Information Systems and Project (20 credits)
-Marketing and Web Analytics (20 credits)

Key Features

This MSc programme is aimed at providing graduates with the knowledge and skills to enable them to satisfy the demands of employers developing and enhancing their use of ICT, particularly in the area of e-Commerce. It aims to enable graduates to improve their employment prospects and enhance their career development.

This programme is involved in areas of established, new and rapidly changing technologies. These technologies are also being introduced into areas where the existing workforce needs to be retrained and enhanced to take advantage of the opportunities arising, for example, the use of the Internet in developing and maintaining supply chains. The rapid advances, particularly in computer technology, over recent years have led to a demand from a wide range of employers for graduates with the knowledge and skills provided by this programme.

Assessment

Student work is assessed through a combination of coursework, lab based practical examinations and written examinations. The final mark for some modules may include one or more pieces of coursework set and completed during the module. Project work is assessed by a written report and oral presentation.

Career Opportunities

eCommerce continues to grow nationally and internationally. Graduates of this programme should be well placed to play a role in that expansion.

Although the UK already has a significant proportion of industries which rely on eCommerce, there remains a shortage of people with the relevant technical knowledge and skills to work in the industry. The skills and knowledge gained throughout the programme will prepare students for both employment within the eCommerce industry and within the computing area on a wider perspective.

The program is designed to allow the graduate of MSc eCommerce to work in a number of different roles. Graduates may seek roles on the business side of eCommerce, for example in marketing, or as an advisor to an eCommerce company. Other graduates may seek roles in software development. eCommerce is popular and is growing nationally and internationally. Graduates of this programme should be well placed to play a role in that expansion.

It is expected that graduates would seek positions such as:
-Web Designer
-Usability consultant
-e-Commerce advisor
-Marketing consultant
-Project manager

This course offers students the opportunity to gain specialised skills and knowledge that can enhance suitability for roles in business, public sector or governmental organisations.

The programme -

Focusing on international legal business structures, this master’s course aims to provide students with an in-depth understanding of international business agreements and dispute resolution mechanisms.

Students study a broad range of contemporary topics including legal regulation, mechanisms of obtaining redress in international commercial disputes, issues relating to the protection of creative endeavour in the digital environment, and the specifics of international trade.

Delving into these subjects teaches students about corporate social responsibility; the Law of Corporations; shareholder rights and the duties of directors; ‘private international law’; ‘conflict of laws’; arbitration agreements; intellectual property rights; domain names; licensing; digital rights management and encryption; data protection and information privacy.

During the course, students will also study standard trade terms, major international trade conventions, the sale, transport and regulation of goods, customs regulations, services and capital in the EU and beyond, e-commerce, electronic contracts, and computer crime.

Practice-based case studies give students the opportunity to apply newly acquired skills to the real world. A work-based project, either with a current employer or under placement, also provides first-hand experience of the field of international trade. The University can help finding placements, which could mean working with employers such as Medicom Healthcare, Lawdit Solicitors and other similar organisations.

Previous students have benefitted from a programme of guest lectures from speakers including commercial solicitors, managing partners, police officers, trading standards officers, barristers and members of the judiciary.

Course Content

LLM International Trade Regulation comprises five core units, including a work-based project which accounts for a third of the course.

Subjects include corporate social responsibility, the Law of Corporations, shareholder rights and the duties of directors.

International Commercial Enforcement and Dispute Resolution: This unit is primarily concerned with mechanisms of obtaining redress in international commercial disputes. It focuses on what is traditionally called ‘private international law’ or ‘conflict of laws’ but it develops further to cover areas such as arbitration and arbitration agreements.

Creativity and Regulation in the Global Digital Environment: This unit focuses on issues relating to the protection of creative endeavour in the digital environment, covering intellectual property rights, domain names, licensing, digital rights management and encryption, data protection and information privacy.

To this end, all our LLM Programmes are assessed on the basis of coursework alone. Candidates choose the times of working. There are no examinations to sit. We offer a dynamic range of fourteen different taught modules and there are eight named pathways, which you can opt to study:
-Chinese Commercial Law
-Commercial Law
-Commercial Dispute Resolution
-E-Commerce Law
-Intellectual Property Law
-International Law
-International Financial Law
-Maritime Law

If you choose to study a named pathway then you will study two compulsory modules (one each semester) as well as two options (one each semester).There is also the option to study for a Joint Pathway, (where you study the two compulsory modules from the two named pathways) to give you a total of four modules of study. Or, you can study for a general LLM in Law, which allows you a completely free choice of four modules so that you can study areas of law of particular interest to you. Even more flexibility is built in to the programmes in that you can commence your studies in either September (Semester A) or January (Semester B) of each year.

As well as taking the four taught modules you are also required to complete a 15,000 word dissertation (this counts as two modules) on a topic related to your chosen pathway. The dissertation provides you with an opportunity to carry out assisted research in area of interest to you. The assistance comes in the form of supervision by an expert member of staff and by regular research methods and skills sessions. The dissertation is submitted by mid-September in your final year.

However, our innovative and professionally facing ethos led to the validation of the Internship Module option to run in Semester C alongside the traditional dissertation.

Students have the option of pursuing either the dissertation or the Internship module (the Internship module is subject to an application procedure). If you choose the Internship, it will provide you with the opportunity to work in a law firm and/or the legal department of a business for one or two days per week over a period of about three months. The internships are organised by the School of Law, Criminology and Political Science to ensure that all students will gain a genuine and invaluable insight into the legal working environment. Assessment is carried out by means of an oral presentation, a reflective diary and a portfolio (in all totalling 15,000 words on submission).

Why choose this course?

Our LLM Programmes are designed to appeal to people from a variety of backgrounds and with a variety of interests ranging from recent undergraduates who wish to acquire specialist knowledge before starting their careers to practising lawyers who seek to compliment their day to day work with further study. Such a wide range of people require programmes to have flexibility to fit into busy lives.

Professional Accreditations

This Programme is validated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority for Continuing Professional Development purposes.

Careers

The University has an extensive careers service available to all students, while the School has two academic members of staff, former solicitors, who hold regular 'surgeries' providing careers advice including CV writing, interview skills and suggestions for obtaining work placements during your studies at the School.

Teaching methods

If you are studying full-time, you attend for two lectures and small group seminars per week and part-time for one lecture and small group session per week. You will be given comprehensive module guides and reading lists at the beginning of each module to enable you to read widely and research issues independently.

You are expected to approach issues of law critically and to consider law in its social, political and economic context. Each module is assessed exclusively by means of coursework and makes extensive use of our flexible, learner-centred managed online learning environment (StudyNet). Seminar tutors are specialists in their area of teaching and will be available and willing to help with any questions or concerns in the preparation for classes.
