Due to the ongoing impact of the global pandemic we have had to evaluate all of our courses to ensure that we adhere to Government guidelines to protect the health and wellbeing of our staff and students. This means that as we work through these changes the modules, delivery methods and assessments shown, including those shown for future years, are subject to change.
Please note: if you are starting your course in January 2021, all teaching will be online for your first semester. We will continue to assess the situation in regards to September 2021 onwards.
The International Business and Corporate Law stream of the LLM specialises in the complex issues, rules, and regulations in business transactions and corporate law at national and international levels.
The stream covers legal principles related to corporate transactions, activities, governance and finance and practical challenges in the organisation and operation of multinational corporations and cross-border business arrangements. It provides a critical understanding of the policy considerations at the heart of corporate law while developing your ability to analyse, interpret and apply economic, financial, theoretical and socio-legal material to the most pressing contemporary problems in corporate law and practice.
You will need to study two compulsory core modules, 6 options from the rich choice of stream-specific modules and undertake a dissertation on a related topic to gain your specialisation.
In addition to advancing your knowledge of the intricate mechanics of governance and regulation in the global economy, the course affords you essential transferable skills, stimulates your capacity for independent legal research and strengthens your oral and written communication ability.
The LLM International Business and Corporate Law qualification will enhance your career prospects in the corporate world, commercial environment and business regulatory agencies around the world. It provides an outstanding foundation for you to further enhance your career in international law firms and business organisations or to develop academic research expertise within this highly-regarded specialist area.
