Course Summary

Course Summary

A master’s degree in law is a fantastic way for law graduates to develop a specialisation, or for non-lawyers working in related fields to gain a deeper understanding of legal issues. This LLM pathway focuses your study on Business and Financial Law, introducing you to the contemporary legal and regulatory issues that govern international business and finance. You’ll study core modules that cover critical issues in the field, with the chance to choose from an extensive list of additional optional modules that address themes like the World Trade Organisation, Corporate Social Responsibility and Banking Law.

The course is perfect for lawyers and law graduates looking for career development, although all of our LLM courses can be studied by students without a background in law, since you will be trained in the necessary analytical and legal skills.

How You'll Learn

All our LLM courses are taught through a combination of lectures, seminars and workshops. We extensively use problem-based learning, class discussion and case studies to ensure our teaching is brought to life, while all our lectures are issued as podcasts to give you greater access to learning resources and allow you to revisit specific classes. The LLM Transitional Justice, LLM International Law and Legal Practice and LLM Human Rights Advocacy pathways are supported by regular events at the Centre for Human rights in Conflict.

Your Future Career

This pathway gives you the necessary legal, financial and business training to develop highly sought-after specialist knowledge, as well as fantastic networking opportunities and the chance to work on real problems in the field. The course allows you to undertake a work-based project so you can gain practical experience and build professional links, while our renowned Law Clinic enables you to work on real legal cases with local people to enhance your clinical skills. Professionals in banking, finance, corporate governance and trade will benefit greatly from the specialist training offered in this programme, and it’s also an ideal course for law and business graduates who wish to work in the field of financial and business law.

Modules

You consider the nature and operation of financial regulation in all of its principle areas of application at the present time. The significant changes which are presently taking place in national and global financial markets make this an essential part of a postgraduate study in international law.
