The new LLM in International Commercial Law gives you specialist knowledge of the regulation of international commerce, and a thorough understanding of the broader social, economic and political contexts which shape modern commercial law and practice.

The course offers a wide range of modules that are contemporary, academically rigorous and skills oriented. You'll gain core knowledge of the framework and regulatory environment of modern commerce whilst having the flexibility to tailor your degree to suit your particular interests and career aspirations by choosing from a range of specialist commercial law modules (and optional modules from the School of Management). 

Whatever your choice, your studies will examine key contemporary issues such as developments in information technology, free trade and trade protectionism, Brexit, and sustainability.

What you will study

An intensive two-week induction at the beginning of the course ensures that all students, including those from non-law and/or international backgrounds are taught the core concepts and academic skills necessary to achieve the learning outcomes.

Students take 180 credits of modules comprising a taught element of 120 credits, and a 60 credit dissertation.

Students will be required to take 40 credits of core modules covering subjects on Principles of Regulation and Enforcement; and Sustainable Development Law in Business and Society which will explore core themes and provide the necessary background and wider context of the modern environment within which businesses operate and their regulation.

In addition, students will be required to take a total of 60 credits of modules from the following (20 credits each) which will provide specific and in-depth knowledge in specialist aspects of commercial law:

  • Commercial dispute resolution
  • International Commercial contracts and e commerce
  • International intellectual property law
  • International Banking and Finance
  • Trade and investment law

The final 20-credit module of the LLM in International Commercial Law is an elective which can either be chosen from the list above, from a wider pool of postgraduate subject modules from the School of Law such as Business, Human Rights and Environment, Petroleum Law, Climate Change Law, or modules from other departments such as the School of Management.

Learning and assessment

You will be taught in small groups in an interactive and engaging learning environment.

You will have the opportunity in some modules to be involved in clinical legal education, where you gain practical experience working with real life cases whilst supported by academics.

The course is also enhanced by visiting guest speakers from all walks of life, including the legal professions, academia, and businesses.

Career prospects

Our courses are shaped by the School of Law International Advisory Board, made up of leading figures in the judiciary and legal practice, academia and wider industry and society who advise us on the skills and competencies needed in the current and future workplace. This feeds into the design and delivery of our courses, ensuring our students gain knowledge and experience that is not only academically rigorous but valued by employers.

The University is committed to helping students develop and enhance employability and this is an integral part of many programmes. Specialist support is available throughout the course from Career and Employability Services including help to find part-time work while studying, placements, vacation work and graduate vacancies. Students are encouraged to access this support at an early stage and to use the extensive resources on the Careers website.

Discussing options with specialist advisers helps to clarify plans through exploring options and refining skills of job-hunting. In most of our programmes there is direct input by Career Development Advisers into the curriculum or through specially arranged workshops.

Study support

You will be allocated a personal tutor - someone with whom you will be able to talk about any academic or personal concerns. Staff responsible for the administration of the LLM are available to help you with day-to-day queries about the programme.

We are a small, dedicated and friendly Law School, allowing our academic and support staff to get to know students personally, and offer individual support and teaching. We make sure that your time with us is as rewarding as possible, and do everything we can to help you reach your potential.

The Law Library has dedicated support from our Law Librarian, who will be able to provide you with guidance on the use of legal databases, OSCOLA referencing or finding a book in the library.

As well as offering access to key textbooks and other materials in hard copy, the law library also subscribes to three of the key legal databases:

  • Westlaw
  • Lexis Library
  • Hein Online

You'll therefore have 24 hour electronic access, on and off campus, to the majority of material you require to successfully complete your programme. Where tutors require you to read material which is not as readily available, it will be made available to you though Blackboard. You are encouraged to also consult other collections as there is interesting and useful material on all of the topics studied available from a variety of disciplines, and you will therefore be introduced to the library as a whole rather than just specific collections as part of this programme.

The Library includes self-issue and self-return facilities, photocopiers and printers, areas for silent study and social learning, and wireless access throughout the building. There is an information desk, a special computer laptop bar, and areas for social learning in the upper Atrium on Level 1. The building incorporates full disability access.

LLM students also have access to social spaces including Postgraduate Common Room and the Weir room.

Research

Our core research theme is law as a driver for change in a global society. This reflects the expertise of our academic staff, and our commitment to contemporary and practically relevant research which is global in context and oriented towards ensuring sustainable and resilient societies, including within the context of international businesses.

Our Master of Laws (LLM) programme gives you an in-depth knowledge of law in its international context. You’ll evaluate research and advanced scholarship in areas of legal study such as jurisprudence legal theory, human rights and international law.

With a range of optional modules available alongside the core curriculum, you’ll be able to tailor the programme to your areas of academic interest and your career aspirations.

You’ll learn from School of Law academics with significant research expertise and international legal experience in areas including:

  • social justice
  • criminal law
  • human rights
  • energy and environment
  • competition law
  • intellectual property

You do not need to have studied law at undergraduate level to take the LLM in International Legal Studies. If you have not previously studied law, you will take a two-week Introduction to Law course before the start of the programme to ensure you are familiar with the basic legal institutions and sources.

In addition to providing specialist legal knowledge, the LLM will equip you with abilities valued in any profession, such as research, analytical and communication skills. The programme also gives you an insight into how international law shapes global society, and how we operate within it. This means you’ll be equipped to explore a broad range of career opportunities once you graduate.

What you will study

The LLM International Legal Studies is designed to provide a challenging and stimulating programme of study which considers law in its international social, economic and political contexts.

The four core modules studied provide you with a detailed understanding of key global issues in law and focus on developing your skills to research; analyse and discuss important issues in international law, in human rights and in legal theory. They also prepare you for the final part of the Master’s programme which is your dissertation through which you have the opportunity to study a particular topic of your choice in detail. The optional modules offered allow you to follow a particular interest with a focus on global legal issues.

Option Modules

Learning and assessment

You will learn how to evaluate existing theories and methodologies and, where appropriate, propose new hypotheses. Additionally, you will develop your ability to work with your knowledge of legal principles and apply them to new situations in order to arrive at imaginative and innovative solutions and interpretations. We also teach you how to develop excellent communication skills, including writing skills commensurate with LLM level study and advanced scholarship.

You will be taught in small groups in an environment focused on you and your development. Your learning will be guided and supported through weekly teaching and learning sessions in which you will take part in a variety of activities. All taught modules therefore have a two hour teaching slot every week throughout the Semester in which they are taught. In the early part of the programme, most of these slots will be used as class time with lecturer input, individual and group work activities. The scheduled class time will be used to help you develop your understanding of the law relating to the topic at hand.

You will be required to work independently, prepare for all teaching sessions and take all opportunities offered to develop your skills and knowledge, contribute to small group discussions and engage with other activities supported through the Virtual Learning Environment.

Natural Resources form the bedrock of global economic development. However, development and use of natural resources have implications for the environment, often leading to other socio-economic and political challenges such as poverty, disease and conflicts, especially in developing countries.

This course will provide you with an excellent understanding of the law and policy issues in this area, and skills necessary to pursue a career in this exciting field, whether this be in private legal practice, as in-house lawyers in corporations, policy-oriented work in intergovernmental and other international institutions in advocacy in civil society organisations.

The design ensures you gain core knowledge of the wider context framing law and policy in this field whilst giving you the flexibility to tailor your degree to suit your particular interests by choosing from a range of specialist modules.
