International Commercial Law - LLM

Course Description

This course provides an overview of the main international commercial law issues that arise in a multiplicity of transactions.

This course covers those aspects of law that commercial law practitioners could expect to encounter on a regular basis, including contract law, employment law, competition law, intellectual property and environmental law. The overarching aim of this LLM course is to facilitate the recognition and appreciation of international commercial law. It also permits detailed study of some aspects of law.

This LLM course is provided by the School of Law in conjunction with Henley Business School, providing an invaluable opportunity to acquire a unique combined perspective of financial and commercial law issues.


Modules include:
-Advanced Issues in International Commercial Law
-International Corporate Finance and the Law
-Corporate Governance and Accountability
-Financial Markets
-Legal Aspects of Mergers, Acquisitions and Takeovers

Please note that all modules are subject to change.


A postgraduate law degree will open many doors not only in specialised areas of employment, such as law firms, European and intergovernmental and nongovernmental organisations (NGOs), but also in academia (with further postgraduate study), the media (journalism and broadcasting), the civil service, and other branches of public service.

Graduates from our LLM course have gone on to work for various national and international law firms, as lawyers and as in-house legal counsel for large multinational companies in the UK and abroad, as well as international organisations and (NGOs). A good proportion of our recent graduates are working with the European Union, the International Criminal Court (ICC) and the International Police (INTERPOL), amongst others.
