LLM - Master of Laws
Management Planning Company Law
A Master of Laws (LLM) is a postgraduate degree designed to enhance your academic legal knowledge, particularly focusing on specific areas of interest. The LLM Corporate Governance GradCG is an innovative, flexible programme designed for law and non-law graduates who would like to advance their careers by gaining essential in-depth knowledge of Corporate Governance in practice.
Please note: This programme was previously known as the LLM Corporate Governance Grad ICSA prior to the name change of the CGI which took place on 16 September 2019.
The LLM Corporate Governance GradCG programme is different from our other corporate governance Master’s awards. It is accredited by The Chartered Governance Institute (CGI, formerly known as the Institute for Chartered Secretaries and Administrators or ICSA) and is mapped to the new Chartered Governance Qualifying Programme syllabus. This means that there is a defined syllabus that you must complete in order to successfully graduate from the programme. Upon successful completion, and in addition to your LLM, you will be eligible for GradCG membership. Once you have gained enough relevant work experience, you will be able to apply to become a fully chartered member of CGI.
This course has been developed to explore in detail the types of rules, policies and controls put in place to determine the behaviour of a corporation, and the intended outcome of those measures. It covers areas such as models of corporate governance, classification of systems and the impact of the global financial crisis. It will also cover the role of the company secretary, the board of directors, the relationship between the board and its shareholders, disclosure and accountability.
Modules are assessed by a three hour unseen written examination or 4,500 word coursework assignment.
Attendance at one of our UK campuses (or an approved overseas centre by prior arrangement) is required for all examinations, including for online study.
The default campus location for online study is London.
