Course Summary

Course Summary

Overview

As business increasingly occurs across international borders, so must the practice of law equally change to accommodate commercial activities within the global economy. Through this 100% online and part-time LLM you will gain a deep understanding of international business law and the complexities of transnational business interactions.

Through this online LLM International Business Law, you will delve into a range of stimulating topics, including transnational contract law, competition law at a national and international level, and explore the remit, procedures and operation of the World Trade Organization. This programme will equip you with the specialist legal knowledge and skills to prepare you for a career within global business law.

Teaching methods

We’re a 100% online education provider, so we use a state-of-the-art virtual learning environment (VLE) to deliver our teaching, resources and assessments. Our system tracks and manages the learning process in real-time and provides you with immediate access to your learning materials. The VLE is accessible 24/7 and allows both students and tutors to actively take part in real-time conversations and live Q&As.

We believe you get the most out of your time spent studying when you are kept informed of your performance, and we achieve this by:

assessing you throughout modules rather than waiting for end of year assessments
showing your marks in your grade book which can be viewed whenever you log onto the virtual learning environment (VLE)
rapid turnaround on work assessed to ensure your grade book is always up to date
ensuring you have regular contact with your Student Support team

Assessment methods

All assessments are delivered through our virtual learning environment (VLE). There is no requirement to travel to external test centres or to sit exams! Instead, you will submit assignments through the VLE, such as written reports, discussion forum participation or reflective journal entries.

We also have a policy of ensuring that the work submitted by students is authentic – we use a well-established electronic monitoring system to check for plagiarism.

Career prospects

The specialist legal knowledge you will develop will be useful for roles connected to global commerce, such as a lawyer within an international law firm, a multinational company doing business across borders, a governmental organisation regulating trade, or a research position looking into the future of business. The skills you gain will also enhance your CV and unlock senior roles.

Qualified barristers and solicitors also can use this course to meet their annual Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements.
