About

The LLM in International Commercial Law immerses the post-graduate student in more detailed aspects of commercial law, as well as developing broadly applicable legal research and other transferable skills. The emphasis is on those areas of law, such as credit and security, intellectual property and competition law, which are critical to the operation of any commercial enterprise in the modern world. The programme also takes account of the increasing internationalisation of commerce with modules in international business transactions and international trade organisations. This international focus of the programme provides opportunities for graduates to find employment, not just in Ireland, but in many other jurisdictions.

Graduate Profile

Recent graduates of the programme are employed in a variety of enterprises, such as McCann Fitzgerald solicitors, Airbus (UK) and Ulster Bank. All of our graduates are prized by employers as they provide added value to their employer and clients, whether in a traditional law firm, as a practising solicitor/barrister, in private industry or with governmental agencies.
