Course content

The LLM in International Commercial Law has been a very successful programme since its inception, with, on average, over 88% of graduates finding employment within a year of graduation. The programme will be particularly attractive to law graduates who wish to develop a specialisation in commercial law, and especially an ability to understand and apply commercial law in multi-jurisdictional scenarios.

The LLM in International Commercial Law immerses the post-graduate student in more detailed aspects of commercial law, as well as developing broadly applicable legal research and other transferable skills. The emphasis is on those areas of law, such as credit and security, intellectual property and competition law, which are critical to the operation of any commercial enterprise in the modern world. The programme also takes account of the increasing internationalisation of commerce with modules in global competition law and international trade organisations. This international focus of the programme provides opportunities for graduates to find employment, not just in Ireland, but in many other jurisdictions.

Choose from a wide range of modules including:

  • Law of International Trade Organisations
  • Law of International Business Associations/Corporate Governance
  • Global Competition Law
  • International Protection of Intellectual Property
  • Counter Terrorism Law and International Business
