Course content


Globalisation is here to stay and the number of active international industries continues to grow each year. This specialist LLM will develop your understanding of the nature of international commercial law and regulation.

You can study aspects of commercial law that have international relevance, and consider specific issues that arise in commercial and consumer law. You will also explore different aspects of globalisation and how the law influences and responds to these. This course is suitable for individuals already working in the legal sector, as well as those looking to increase their knowledge in this area.

Outside of term time you will have the opportunity to volunteer in the University’s Legal and Financial Advice Clinic located at our Cardiff Campus. There you will have the chance to put the knowledge and skills you have gained on the course into practice. The Clinic will allow you to engage directly with the legal profession, and work with a number of reputable law firms.
