Months of entry
An increasingly globalised economy requires international commercial law professionals to have a wide range of knowledge on issues relevant to international commerce, such as the World Trade Organisation and the law of international trade, and in areas such as international finance, intellectual property or international energy law.
As part of Northumbria’s innovative and flexible LLM Law framework, the International Commercial Law specialism has been designed to meet the needs of legal practitioners within this field, as well as finance professionals who may benefit from a deeper contextual understanding.
It is not necessary to have an undergraduate law qualification and there are no jurisdictional restrictions, so you will be part of a diverse and intellectually stimulating cohort. You will learn from each other’s experiences in a relaxed and collaborative environment.
Northumbria Law School is one of the largest law school in the UK, and houses academics with an international reputation for research in International Commercial Law. You will benefit from our strong links with the North East legal community, and learn from staff who continue to undertake high profile work in legal practice.
Engaging in the LLM Law’s specialist areas of contemporary and innovative legal study, within an established postgraduate legal qualification, provides you with a remarkable opportunity to enhance your career.
