The LLM in International Corporate Governance and Commercial Law puts York at the forefront of legal education on corporations. It takes a comparative and international approach to the key areas of corporate governance and corporate and commercial law.

It assesses these approaches in times of economic stability and in crisis, with particular reference to the current crisis. The course particularly focuses on corporate governance and on commercial transactions.

The programme reflects the latest innovations in legal education including York’s pioneering Problem-Based Learning as well as more traditional lectures and seminars.
