This programme is offered on a one year full-time basis, or two year part-time basis, leading to an award of an LL.M. in International Commercial Law. The programme will be particularly attractive to law graduates who wish to develop a specialisation in commercial law, and especially an ability to understand and apply commercial law in multi-jurisdictional scenarios. The programme will enhance the career prospects of graduates, those starting careers in the legal professions, legal advisers to commercial entities and any lawyers whose work will involve cross border commercial relations.

The LL.M in International Commercial Law is designed to immerse the post-graduate student in more detailed aspects of commercial law, as well as developing broadly applicable legal research skills. The emphasis is on those areas of law, such as credit and security, intellectual property and competition law, critical to the operation of any commercial enterprise in the modern world. The programme will also take account of the increasing internationalisation of commerce with modules in international business transactions and international protection of intellectual property.


Semester 1Comparative Property Law; Comparative Law of Civil Obligations; International Business Transactions; Comparative Legal Research Skills
Semester 2Comparative Competition Law; Law of Credit & Security; International Protection of Intellectual Property Rights; Dissertation Methodology
Semester 3Dissertation
Where a student wishes to complete the Masters over a two-year period of part-time study, two modules will be taken in each of four semesters followed by a 15,000 word dissertation. The module selection will be by agreement with the Course Director.
