The Dual LLM in Commercial Law (Singapore and London) programme aims to provide students with a unique opportunity to study commercial law in two major commercial hubs, Singapore and London. The programme is designed to give you a broad overview of Asian commercial law in Singapore followed by the opportunity to build on this knowledge by going into more depth in London, through more specialised taught modules as well as a dissertation.
This is a highly intensive 15-month degree programme where you will gain insight into the legal underpinnings of commerce in the East and West. On successful completion you will be awarded a Dual LLM in Commercial Law (Singapore and London) from Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) in the UK and Singapore Management University (SMU) in Singapore.

Why study LLM in Commercial Law at QMUL and SMU?
LLM degrees from QMUL and SMU have the potential to open up global career opportunities for high-calibre students. That's because both institutions are among the world's most respected universities and the programme is tailored to meet the needs of employers.
This 15-month Master of Law programme offers a greater variety and breadth of experience than a standard one year programme.
You will gain an expert understanding of different international regions' approaches to resolving commercial problems, and the ways in which these respective solutions achieve (or fail to achieve) their ends.
The usual qualification for entry to the LLM programme is a degree in law, or a degree with a substantial law content, of at least 2.1 honours (or equivalent). Law graduates with 2.2 honours who also have other legal qualifications and/or substantial professional legal experience may also qualify. Students from outside the United Kingdom must give evidence of their English language ability by producing an English language test score: IELTS 7.0 (minimum Writing: 7.0 and R, L, S: 5.5). Other English test results may also be considered in accordance with the QMUL admissions regulations.
