Course content

This programme provides the perfect opportunity for you to mould your studies and specialise in the complex but rewarding area of International Commercial Law. With a comprehensive range of courses combining theory and practical professional skills, you’ll be guided by our team of world-class experts. The last 50 years have shown high growth in the field of international commerce, with trade being particularly prominent as the powerhouse behind legal development. Due to the introduction of the internet, international transactions are now so common that people barely realise they are conducting them, whilst at the other end of the scale, multinational companies conduct million, even billion pound transactions. International commercial law is now relied upon more than ever to support these transactions and provide protection where necessary, making this subject more in demand than ever before. In contrast to the LLM International Commercial Law with Dissertation, the LLM International Commercial Law with Professional Skills offers students the opportunity to develop key practical skills in arbitration rather than research skills through the writing and submission of a thesis. Students on this programme undertake an intensive summer school programme, followed by a simulated practical exercise and submission of an extended piece of writing. The School has Recognised Course Provider (RCP) status from the prestigious Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) in connection with this programme. Students who successfully complete this programme are thus exempt from some or all of the academic requirements for Membership of the CIArb.
