Course content

This programme provides a broad learning experience in the regulation of business both in the UK, Europe and at a global level, in a school which has expertise across many aspects of business law, from corporate, banking and intellectual property, to international trade.

LLM International Business Law will enable you to develop knowledge and skills in relation to the legal rules regulating a variety of business activity across the world. The programme is ‘bespoke’ in that you are able to frame your study according to what interests you with specialist optional modules.

You’ll approach business problems from the law’s point of view, and examine legal rules to identify their coherence and consistency. You’ll also evaluate legal business solutions in terms of the law’s purpose and underlying rationale, and from the perspective of economic and social purposes the law should serve.

Compulsory modules studied throughout the year will enable you to hone your legal research and writing skills, culminating in your dissertation – an independent piece of research on your chosen topic.

You’ll also benefit from our Support in Academic and Personal Development programme. This runs alongside your taught academic programme in semester one and is specifically designed to complement the School’s induction activities and ongoing academic skills support for students.
