Kent Law School (KLS) is a cosmopolitan centre of world-class critical legal research, offering a supportive and intellectually stimulating place to study postgraduate taught and research degrees. Rated as the 6th best Law School in the UK in the most recent Research Assessment Exercise (and 4th for the proportion of research classified as world-class and internationally excellent), KLS gives you unparalleled opportunities to study with leading academic experts in a variety of specialised fields of law.
International commercial law is one of the pillars of the contemporary globalising economy. Economic restructuring and technological innovation have influenced changes to the organisation and regulation of consumer relations, credit, banking and other financial services, business transactions and international trade. They have also stimulated the development and expansion of property regimes such as those governing electronic data, creative expression and inventions and financial assets. Students of International Commercial Law at Kent have been studying these developments since the early 1980s in a programme that has a well-established reputation for excellence.
The LLM degree in International Commercial Law opens up access to a range of occupations that require specialist expertise. It equips students with the necessary intellectual tools to practise international commercial law, or work for relevant government departments, regulators and international organisations in a policy-making or advisory capacity. The degree also provides an excellent foundation for students who may wish to pursue a research degree in the field.
The curriculum combines a thorough grounding in technical legal instruments of international commercial law with sophisticated training in interdisciplinary frameworks for analysis of global business regulation as well as reflective evaluation of the operation and effectiveness of law. The modules are taught by distinguished academic specialists who cover a large and diverse range of subjects within the field.
Programme structure Our LLM and Diploma programmes allow you to broaden and deepen your knowledge and understanding of law by specialising in one or more different areas. You can tailor your studies to your particular needs and interests to obtain an LLM or Diploma in a single specialisation, in two specialisations jointly, or by choosing a broad range of modules in different areas of law to obtain a general LLM or Diploma in Law.
As a student on the LLM at Canterbury, your choice of specialisation will be shaped by the modules you take and your dissertation topic. To be awarded an LLM in a single specialisation, at least three of your six modules must be chosen from those associated with that specialisation with your dissertation also focusing on that area of law. The other three modules can be chosen from any offered in the Law School. To be awarded a major/minor specialisation you will need to choose three modules associated with one specialisation, and three from another specialisation, with the dissertation determining which is your major specialisation.
For example, a student who completes at least three modules in International Commercial Law and completes a dissertation in this area would graduate with an LLM in International Commercial Law; a student who completes three Criminal Justice modules and three Environmental Law modules and then undertakes a dissertation which engages with Criminal Justice would graduate with an LLM in Criminal Justice and Environmental Law.
