The LLM Law Degree has been designed to equip you with the in depth knowledge and relevant skills that will enhance your professional career in a range of legal environments.

Responding to student and employer demand, we have restructured our top-rated Masters in International Commercial Law course to incorporate maximum flexibility both in the topics you cover and in the way and pace you learn. Our courses are ranked within the top Universities by the Complete University Guide and The Guardian University Tables.

We have added further pathways allowing you to specialise in such sought-after areas of expertise as Energy Law, Dispute Resolution, or Commercial Law, or to spread your studies across a wider selection of the modules we offer at Masters level. There is a strong international flavour to the subjects offered. You are now able to combine on campus classes with online ones to suit your circumstances.
