Course content

The LLM International Commercial Law course draws primarily upon the common law tradition but is intended to provide the widest possible perspective through groundings in international economic law and contemporary economic and financial context.

Many businesses rely on their ability to trade internationally, so a solid understanding of international commercial law is attractive to prospective employers, including specialist forms with international clients.

  • Gain an in-depth understanding of the dynamics of international commerce, a common law perspective of the legal regulation of institutions and transactions, an appreciation of the problems associated with competing national jurisdictions and a critical awareness of corporate, intellectual property and tax law.
  • Tailor your studies toward the specific areas of international commercial law to suit your desired career through a range of option units

  • Enhance your career prospects, not only within the legal profession but in a variety of industries. Graduates have gone on to work as consultants, judges assistants, senior lawyers and associate directors.
