This highly respected LLM aims to offer a unique student experience by taking advantage of our outstanding and wide ranging academic reputation in this field, with emphasis on innovative and problem-solving teaching methods as well as our comparative and international outlook.
The programme allows you to deepen and broaden your knowledge of law in this area and will assist your professional development in these fields. While intellectually rigorous it also keeps you grounded in real life practice by drawing on the real world experiences of our teaching faculty. Aimed at recent law graduates (or graduates of joint degrees with a significant legal content) as well as established legal or other professionals who may have graduated a number of years ago, the programme is rigorous and demanding.
The LLM will focus its core on international trading and financial/banking transactions (eg. modules such as International Trade Law and the Law of International Finance) and the resolution of international business disputes through arbitration and/or business litigation (eg. modules such as International Commercial & Investment Arbitration and International Business Transactions – Litigation).
It is strongly oriented towards practice in these fields and therefore has a support group of relevant comparative law modules that are regarded as being useful to working in this area, such as Transnational & Comparative Commercial & Financial Law and International & Comparative Law of Trusts.
The regulation of global trade under the aegis of the World Trade Organisation and the taxation of international business is also covered.
