Course content

The LLM in International Trade and Commercial Law provides the opportunity to study how the law relates to commercial endeavours within a globalised economy from the perspective of the private business actor. It enables you to specialise in areas such as international commercial arbitration, cross-border transactions, international investment law, intellectual property law, anti-corruption, corporate governance and corporate social responsibility.

It is ideally suited to students from a commercial law, business, management, or economics background, providing advanced knowledge of the application of legal principles and mechanisms to the world of international commerce.

As well as the LLM in International Trade and Commercial Law, we offer four other specialised LLM courses: International Law, International Economic Law, International Human Rights Law, and International Law, Globalisation and Development.
