Course content

The LLM in International Business Law enables you to develop knowledge and skills in relation to the legal rules regulating business activity in the UK and Europe, and at a global level.

You will approach business problems from a legal point of view, and examine legal rules to identify their coherence and consistency. You will also evaluate legal business solutions in terms of the legal, economic and social purposes the law should serve.

Our graduates will be enabled to pursue careers in legal practice, or the public service, or any career where success is built upon the ability to understand, analyse and respond to developments in international business law.
