Course content

Part of our comprehensive range of postgraduate LLM programmes, the LLM in Commercial Law offers you a specialist pathway for indepth study in law relating to business.

Designed to give you a broad, contextual and critical understanding of the area of commercial law, the course covers the operation of judicial, legislative and administrative action in relevant domestic, European and international contexts. You will be working at the leading edge of scholarship in this field, giving you an advantage when seeking employment either in legal practice or the commercial world.

Diverse choice of modules

Pursuing an LLM enables you to focus in on a particular area of law by delving deep into the subject and undertaking independent research and learning. The modules available on the LLMs cover a diverse range of legal topics, making it possible to tailor the course towards the specific areas of law you wish to pursue further.

Teaching backed by the latest research

The School has a thriving research culture and most members of staff who teach on our LLMs are active researchers, publishing in leading journals. At the same time, the high quality of teaching in the Department has been recognised by the Quality Assurance Agency, which awarded the Law School an 'excellent' rating. You can therefore expect to participate in carefully-planned, lively and highly informative sessions designed to give you a deep and thorough grounding in your chosen area of law.

There are two intakes to the LLM programmes, one in September and one in January, and you can study with us full or part time.
