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.
