Taught by leading experts, this LLM will enable you to apply business law in an international context – a specialism that is highly sought after by a range of public and private sector organisations.
Introducing your course
With more companies seeking to operate across international boundaries and transnational trade agreements coming under increasing scrutiny, specialists in international business law are highly sought after. The LLM International Business Law offers the freedom to design your own course by choosing from a range of optional modules, which cover topics relating to both private commercial trade and country-to-country agreements – an area that has become a hot topic in the context of recent events such as Brexit. Whatever path you choose, you’ll be taught by renowned, research-active academics who are engaged with key international law and commerce organisations, exposing you to new developments long before they reach the text books.
While our students are typically law graduates, this programme will also be of interest to business and legal professionals working in the national and international commercial sector.
Our postgraduate community includes high-calibre students from around the world. As well as developing your understanding of legal and business practice in other countries and cultures, this will enable you to build up a global network of contacts that will be invaluable as your career progresses.
You’ll benefit from a range of careers events and workshops organised by the Law School’s dedicated careers coordinator and by student-run law societies. These include:
the annual Law Careers Fair, which attracts more than 50 law firms and other companies
bespoke CV writing and job application workshops
industry seminars presented by major law firms such as Mishcon de Reya and Clifford Chance
You’ll graduate with a skill set that will be of great value to a variety of organisations. For example, you may choose to work for a commodity house, a large multinational law firm, a global corporation or a government body.
