Course description

You will explore the issues and problems that corporate and commercial law has to deal with. Then discuss and evaluate the law as it exists. Finally, you will critique the law and suggest ways in which it might be improved.

Alongside courses in specific areas of corporate and commercial law, we run a series of workshops on legal skills. Those workshops also introduce you to different methodologies. You will develop and hone your critical skills and research expertise. You will use these skills to write a dissertation during the second half of your LLM, with expert supervision from our staff.

Teaching is informed by the research of renowned academics from the Sheffield Institute of Corporate and Commercial Law.

This course is just one of the pathways offered on the Sheffield LLM. You can also choose to study the LLM International Law and Global Justice option.

If you’re not sure which specialist pathway you want to follow, don’t worry, you can take the Sheffield LLM without specialising, or opt to follow one of the pathways on arrival. The choice is yours.
