Course details

- Description -

The course aims to teach students substantive law and practice in the following commercial law-related subjects: international corporate law and governance; media & entertainment law; international intellectual property law & policy; copyright and the information society; internet law & policy; legal technology, innovation & informatics; and corporate social responsibility and human rights. The course will use proven teaching and learning methods, such as lectures and group seminars, to facilitate the development of students' analytical, research and advocacy skills that are keenly prized by employers. Also, some of the modules are delivered on Saturdays to facilitate full participation by students in work.

- Teaching and learning assessment -

Teaching is primarily by lecture and seminar conducted weekly or fortnightly depending on the preferred teaching method by the coordinator for each module. For example, Internet Law & Policy; and Copyright & the Information Society are taught weekly on Saturdays, while International Corporate Law & Governance is taught fortnightly on Wednesdays. Seminar sessions typically involve students' discussion of assigned readings or tasks that relate to lecture delivered in the previous week.

Career options

A postgraduate degree in commercial law opens up a huge variety of potential general career paths in the private and public sectors. In the private sector for example, there are dedicated specialist law firms that specialise in law and technology practice, intellectual property law practice, and the law and practice of the internet and social media. Law postgraduates with specialisms in commercial law-related courses are well-sought after in legal and business vocations. Moreover, there is ample opportunity for doctoral studies in areas relating to the taught subjects at Ulster University Law School.

The LLM course based at the Transitional Justice Institute, with staff expertise across a range of areas offers an LLM degree which is designed to give students a unique lens on the study of human rights in the contemporary international moment. Using the local Northern Ireland political and legal context as a starting point the course will imbue students with a working knowledge of international norms and principles, while at the same time encouraging students to move beyond the local to reflect critically on present international law norms and their application to other situations and contexts. Students are encouraged to develop and transfer knowledge, experience and expertise of the transformative possibilities of human rights law both in respect of societies emerging from violent conflict and in relation to the local and global management of other particular societal problems. This dual focus – from the local to the global and back - is a core part of the course’s aim to equip you with the knowledge and skills base to contribute internationally as well as locally.

Key benefits

- Opportunity to undertake an LLM programme with a specific focus on transitional justice - the only LLM programme of its type in the UK;

- The opportunity to gain unique insights into the legal protection of rights in transitional contexts, while studying in a society currently in a process of transition;

- Opportunities to specialise in identified areas e.g. human rights, transitional justice, peace and conflict research in divided societies.

- Continue to advance their knowledge and understanding of international and domestic human rights law and issues relating to transitional justice.

- Work placement / study abroad -

Course detail

- Description -

Students obtain experience in aspects of legal practice, from client-handling and case- related research, to advocacy and representation, and reflecting on Public Interest Litigation, as well as developing and managing the Ulster Law Clinic, the specialist clinic embedded in the course.

- Purpose -

The function of the course is to supplement the existing range of legal service providers by focusing on, and meeting, ‘unmet legal need’ in the fields of employment law and social security law. In doing so, students are tasked to analyze ‘unmet legal need’, the availability and consumption of legal services and reflect on wider issues of access to justice, ‘equality of arms’, and dispute resolution.

- Teaching and learning assessment -

Traditional methods of teaching and learning include staff-led lectures; student and tutor-led seminars; group work and student presentations; and problem based scenarios. Within the induction programme students will begin their skills based learning, with an introduction to skills development in interviewing, drafting, negotiation and advocacy.

Assessments include written and oral based coursework and case studies of relevant legal issues and client based problems through the use of reflective learning journals; case studies on simulated and real client cases; and advocacy, interviewing and negotiation exercises.

Career options

You will develop skills highly relevant to legal practice, and to policy, research and advocacy roles in the voluntary, public and private sectors in the UK, Ireland and beyond. Successful completion may also open up a range of further study and research options.
