Course content

The distance learning LLM in International Business Law is designed to provide you with specialist knowledge of key areas of law relevant to international business. The course aims to enhance your professional skills and ability to locate, interpret, analyse and criticise the laws and rules, policies and practices that are essential to the functioning of international business.

The programme is designed with one aim in mind: flexibility. As the programme is delivered online, students have the freedom to study in their own working environment and at their individual pace. Technology-enhanced learning environments support the student experience and students also have access to the University's extensive range of legal databases, including e-journals and e-books.

Applicants to the course are likely to be recent graduates seeking to improve career prospects in international business and law or professionals working in international business, finance or international business law seeking to develop their expertise. As the emphasis of the programme is on the practical and problem solving aspects of the law, it will also help those who may not possess a legal background.

Students will typically complete the programme over six consecutive terms (two calendar years). An accelerated route is also available, by way of which students complete the programme over four consecutive terms (15 calendar months)
