Course content

This LLM degree provides an in depth understanding of the development and application of international business, trade and commercial laws.

Global trade and commerce is constantly evolving and adapting to new technologies, products and market conditions. Nation states’ laws and regulations must comply with international rules to allow trade to be carried out competitively across national boundaries in order to achieve strengthened markets and provide for strong economies.

This internationally recognised postgraduate law degree will appeal to those who are looking to develop an in-depth understanding of and expertise in key areas of international trade, corporate and commercial laws. It may be particularly relevant for practising legal professionals or those employed in finance or business who wish to deepen their knowledge and understanding of this increasingly relevant area of the law for legal practice.

The degree also seeks to inform students of the implications for trading and commerce in the post-Brexit world, as well as looking at the practical dimensions of the continually developing law to companies, traders and state bodies.
