Overview

This programme will enable you to develop specialised and detailed knowledge and skills in relation to the legal rules regulating international corporate law and corporate governance issues in the UK, as well as at a global level. You’ll investigate and apply principles and rules found in various areas of corporate law to novel problems, and real-world and hypothetical scenarios. You’ll also critically evaluate the legal rules, regulations, theories and underlying policies relating to Corporate Law.

You’ll have the opportunity to:

  • investigate the corporate mind
  • study contemporary issues in relation to directors’ duties
  • examine the role of corporate governance in the world economy
  • look at issues of regulation in corporate governance, and explore the rights of shareholders in public companies.

LLM Corporate Law is offered within the dynamic Centre for Business Law and Practice with all the facilities that a leading research-led university offers. This includes opportunities for co-curricular activities that enhance transferable skills and develop knowledge of the law’s impact in the wider world.

The Centre for Business Law and Practice offers a wide range of experience and expertise in a number of fields, with links to the business community through, for example, the Advisory Board, which includes practitioners amongst its members. Industry and professional speakers regularly participate in conference and seminar events, which you’re encouraged to attend.

  • give you an in-depth knowledge of contemporary issues and problems in corporate finance law and securities regulation plus ideas for solution and reform
  • allow you to explore modern day and historical insolvency
  • enable you to examine the role of corporate governance in the world economy
  • hone your legal research and writing skills, culminating in your dissertation – an independent piece of research on your chosen topic.
