It is estimated that 70% of a typical company’s value today lies in its intangible assets. Yet evidence would suggest that companies do not readily understand the nature of these legal assets nor manage them in an effective commercial manner, such that they are sometimes described as the ‘hidden assets’ of a business looking to operate in today’s global market place. Students following this LLM will gain an in-depth legal knowledge of issues and the practical skills acquired will make them an invaluable asset to international commercial organisations. The programme will not only have an appeal to the aspiring practicing lawyer looking for a high level career in an international law firm or multinational company but also for legal advisers to small/medium sized enterprises.
Modules typically include:
• Competition law
• International corporate law and governance
• International intellectual property law
• International litigation and arbitration
• Ship and other Mobile Assets Finance Law
