Course content

This programme aims to provide you with a deeper understanding of how international commercial law operates in practice. The courses within the programme examine contemporary issues in commercial law across a broad range of topics, which aim to equip you with a thorough understanding of law, theory and policy, as well as an appreciation of how the law is practised.

Globalisation and developments in technology have led to a marked increase in international trade in goods and services, in international investment, and in the development of global financial markets. In parallel, the world of international commerce has seen major growth in the regulation of commercial activity at a national and international level, and in international litigation and arbitration when disputes arise.

This LLM aims to help you understand the international context in which businesses currently operate. The programme focuses on the legal responses to the developments shaping international commerce today, as lawyers and business professionals are increasingly required to look beyond domestic law to find solutions appropriate to their international business needs and opportunities.
