Course description

The LLM Corporate Governance is taught by Manchester's corporate governance and corporate social responsibility experts. The course will provide you with specialist knowledge about the law of conducting business in today's global society.

During this course you will examine the major theories concerning the nature of corporations, and the concerns driving corporate governance law and practice, and reform proposals. You will evaluate the effectiveness of current corporation governance processes in setting and pursuing objectives, both nationally and internationally. You will also examine the evidence for European and global convergence of corporate governance practices and the ways in which this might evolve.

This is a rigorous degree which will give you up-to-date and globally applicable expertise for a career in the practice of corporate law.

Coursework and assessment

All course units are assessed by either one unseen written examination, or one coursework essay, or a combination of these two methods of assessment.

The course has a compulsory research component, in which students have the option of choosing either to submit two research papers of 7,000-8,000 words each (and each of the value of 30 credits) or writing a 14,000 to 15,000 words dissertation (60 credits). If students choose the option of submitting two research papers, the first research paper must be within the area of a semester one course unit that you have chosen, and the second research paper must be within the area of a semester two course unit that you have chosen. The research element of the course is supported by weekly research methodology lectures delivered throughout semesters one and two designed to improve students' legal writing and research skills. For specialised streams, dissertation topic must be within those streams while for general LLM dissertation topics must be within one of the modules chosen by the student.
