The wide range of LLM degrees including LLM in International Commercial and Maritime Law offered by the Swansea College of Law and Criminology gives students the advantage of choice and specialism. For the student who does not wish to specialise to that extent, the College of Law and Criminology offers a general LLM postgraduate degree (LLM in International Commercial and Maritime Law). This general LLM provides opportunities for students to develop and demonstrate knowledge and understanding, qualities, skills and other attributes in both Commercial and Maritime Law by choosing specialised modules from both areas of law.

Key Features of International Commercial and Maritime Law

The LLM in International Commercial and Maritime Law course is built upon the wide range of research of high calibre produced by the members of the Institute of International Shipping and Trade Law, who are also teaching diverse modules at the course.

Teaching methods on the International Commercial and Maritime Law LLM are geared towards our students’ needs, conducted mainly through seminars and tutorials in small classes.

The LLM in International Commercial and Maritime Law requires commitment to study throughout one calendar year. Students on the International Commercial and Maritime Law course are given the opportunity to develop a number of important skills which are not only essential to those wishing to become lawyers but are valuable, transferable skills in themselves in other employment contexts. The Shipping and Trade Law Department offers its students dedicated resources, including IT facilities and teaching rooms. Students on the International Commercial and Maritime Law course are fully supported by the College's dedicated Law Librarian and the Law Library holds an extensive selection of legal materials and on-line services such as Lexis and Westlaw.

This degree programme combines some of the coursework elements of a taught MA or MSc, with a longer Dissertation which, unlike taught Masters' programmes, must be started at the beginning of the programme. The aim of the programme is to provide highly qualified and competent students who have a clearly focused research interest with the opportunity to complete a Master's degree with more focus on that interest and fewer compulsory taught courses, without requiring the time or commitment necessary to complete an MPhil or PhD. Students must complete an appropriate taught course in Research Methodology, either in the history area or the policy area, and two other courses. The degree will be a key step on the career path of anyone wishing to pursue an academic career in maritime history, maritime policy, maritime commerce, or maritime defence and security studies. At the end of this degree, successful students may wish to register for a doctoral programme, since this MA provides a useful taster of research training and experience for those considering this route.

The aims of the programme are:

- To provide students who already have a clearly focussed research interest with the opportunity to complete a research-focused Master's degree in the minimum possible time

- To provide a stepping stone enabling rapid transfer from predominantly taught study to self-directed research and an academic career

- To produce a high-quality and substantial piece of written work suitable for publication.

Who is it for?

The course is designed for people who wish to make a career in the marine and offshore industries and who have either developed some experience in industry, maritime or otherwise, or have a sound academic basis or skills upon which to build.

During the course, in addition to gaining an understanding of the underlying principles upon which the industry is based, students will also gain confidence in the interpersonal and international cultural skills which are essential to senior roles in the maritime industries.

Objectives

The Maritime Operations and Management course is designed for existing professionals serving in the industry as well as those looking for a career within the maritime, offshore and sea transport industries. For those already within the industry applicants are likely to have a responsible sea-going or middle-management position. Alternatively, new entrants to the industry are likely to have attained a first degree in a related technical or management subject.

This modular course is focused towards giving students the necessary knowledge and skills to help them achieve high levels in their careers in the maritime and offshore industries. Indeed, many former students on this course have now reached board level appointments in their various companies.

Placements

Students may undertake short placements of normally one to two weeks, if they wish. These are normally undertaken at the IMO or with shipping and insurance companies.

This activity does give the student some further understanding of the industry, if they have no previous industry experience.

Teaching and learning

The course is taught by 12 lecturers who come from academia and industry. These are supported by around six guest lecturers from various parts of the marine industry.

During the year students make visits to IMO and port facilities as well as other organisations.

Assessment

Each subject has coursework associated with it and this normally comprises two essays which probe the student's abilities for critical analysis. Examinations are held twice per year with three subjects examined in January and the remainder in May. To pass, the student must gain 50% in each of the coursework and examination elements.

The project is a major piece of work which results in a dissertation on a chosen subject. This is examined by the dissertation content and viva-voce examination.

Modules

The Maritime Operations and Management course comprises eight taught modules: six compulsory and two elective to suit the student's needs and future career aspirations. Outside of the block taught module students are expected to read around the subjects developed in the lectures, undertake coursework and prepare for examinations in the compulsory subjects.

Completion of modules and examinations will lead to the award of a Postgraduate Diploma. Alternatively, if in addition, a project followed by a dissertation is undertaken by a student, this will lead to the award of a Master's degree.

Full-time students can expect to study for around 37 hours per week.

When they reach the higher echelons of organisations, then the all-embracing nature of the studies in this course help them to take wide management perspectives of problems facing their companies or organisations.

It is anticipated that students upon graduating will find employment within the maritime industries, with some even offered jobs prior to graduation. These employment opportunities are either in the middle or higher management areas. For those with little prior experience in the industry, passing out from the course will place them on paths leading towards employment at higher levels within the industry.

The addition of an LLM specialism in International Shipping Law enhances the current offering of specialist LLM degrees offered by the Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS) within the School of Law, making Queen Mary the only college within the University of London to offer a specialism in this subject.

English law is frequently selected by contracting parties as the applicable law of shipping contracts, with London being chosen as the forum for the resolution of any disputes that may arise, whether in the courts or by arbitration. Thus London is in many ways unrivalled in the UK as a location to undertake studies in this area of law: it is home to the British Maritime Law Association (BMLA) (the UK subsidiary of the Comité Maritime International (CMI)), the London Maritime Arbitrators Association (LMAA) and also to the vast majority of the top-tier law firms for Shipping Law in the UK, as ranked in the Legal 500 and the Chambers & Partners Guides.

Located as it is, in the centre of London, CCLS is the ideal place to read for an LLM degree in International Shipping Law: students will enjoy access to the many resources that the Centre has to offer, including its membership of the BMLA, as well as the resources of the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (IALS) Library and the libraries of neighbouring London Colleges.

Teaching on modules offered under the International Shipping Law specialism will be enhanced by the contribution of distinguished guest speakers, including legal practitioners from City law firms with many years of experience in maritime law, and experts from the International Maritime Law Institute (IMLI), established under the auspices of the International Maritime Organization (IMO). New modules in maritime law subjects will also be available to students selecting other LLM specialisms.

Internships

International shipping company, Andros Maritime Agencies, is to run three internships for LLM in International Shipping Law and LLM in Insurance Law students at QMUL. Read more about the shipping law internships.
