Entry requirements

The basic requirement for admission to the LL M programme is a recognised first degree in law (or a degree with substantial law content) of at least good upper second class honours standard or an equivalent overseas qualification. Exceptionally, you may be considered where a comparable academic level has been achieved through other graduate studies, or where work or experience has made you a suitable candidate for the LLM.

Course content

The LLM will focus its core on international trading and financial/banking transactions (eg. modules such as International Trade Law and the Law of International Finance) and the resolution of international business disputes through arbitration and/or business litigation (eg modules such as International Commercial & Investment Arbitration and International Business Transactions – Litigation).

It is strongly oriented towards practice in these fields and therefore has a support group of relevant comparative law modules that are regarded as being useful to working in this area, such as Transnational & Comparative Commercial & Financial Law and International & Comparative Law of Trusts.

The regulation of global trade under the aegis of the World Trade Organisation and the taxation of international business is also covered.
