An increasingly globalised economy requires international commercial law professionals to have a wide range of knowledge on issues relevant to international commerce, such as the World Trade Organisation and the law of international trade, and in areas such as international finance, intellectual property or international energy law. The LLM in International Commercial Law has been designed to meet the distinct, identified needs of international commercial law professionals and legal practitioners. You will gain specialist legal knowledge within a practical context, whilst developing expertise in chosen areas and enhancing your research skills.
With maximum flexibility in mind, the course allows you to work towards your LLM in stages. To access the LLM you will have previously completed the awards of PG Cert and PG Dip.
The LLM in International Commercial Law is designed to appeal to both lawyers and non-lawyers working in international commerce, and to law graduates who may wish to enhance their employability in this area. To be eligible for the LLM you must have previously completed the PG Cert and PG Dip.
The usual entry requirement is one of the following: a degree in law; a degree incorporating law elements or a joint honours degree incorporating law; a non-law degree with appropriate work experience; a comparable professional qualification. Candidates without a degree or equivalent but with suitable work related experience may also exceptionally be considered. Please note that this programme requires one written reference to be provided with your application.
