Our LLM in Law course will provide you with an opportunity to explore this area and develop your knowledge around Law, particularly in areas affected by international and comparative law. You will be introduced to the relevant rules, values and institutions of comparative and international law, which then feed into, and aim to challenge your learning, through study topics including public international law, international human rights, commercial law, and corporate social responsibility.

Benefitting from over 50 years’ experience of teaching Law and giving you the opportunity to participate in CMI accredited module, our LLM in Law offers plenty of ways to help to develop your skills and stand out in the global graduate market.
