Entry requirements

Applicants should normally hold a good first degree in law, or an equivalent qualification in a related discipline, and must be fluent in written and spoken English. We expect applicants who are not nationals of English-speaking countries OR have not successfully completed an academic qualification equivalent to a UK undergraduate degree taught in English to have an overall IELTS score of at least 7.0. Applicants with a first degree in a subject other than law will be considered, but it should be noted that this may restrict the choice of modules where content is dependent on a prior knowledge of law.

Course content

The Specialist LLM in European Commercial Law is unique in that it takes a practical focus on the field of Commercial Law in a European context. The EU is one of the largest trading blocs in the world and a good grounding in European Commercial Law will hugely benefit anyone who has an interest in business relations and transactions with traders and organisations in the EU.

Graduates of the Specialist LLM should acquire the relevant transferable skills to work either within a European firm or organisation, or a firm or organisation outside the EU with intentions to conduct business in European countries.

This Specialist LLM is especially useful for those who wish to work in firms and organisations with business operations in Europe or those with vital business connections with companies or organisations from Europe.

The programme focuses on all the fundamentals of commercial, corporate and financial transactions from an EU law perspective.

You will have the opportunity to learn from established academics and experienced practitioners the essential tools for dealing with legal issues within the European commercial and corporate domain.
