Course Content

The LLM programme is offered on a full-time basis, to be completed in one academic year; and a part-time basis, to be completed in two academic years.

Students must complete at least 90 credits worth of modules from the qualifying specialist module options for the LLM International Commercial Law. The remaining 30 credits needed to complete the taught stage of the degree can be chosen from the full suite of modules offered across all of our LLM programmes.

In addition, students must choose a dissertation topic which sits within the field of International Commercial Law. Students are given a wide array of support when choosing their dissertation title and preparing to undertake research, with bespoke workshops and one-to-one support available throughout the process.

Teaching

The LLM programme operates small-group seminar teaching, allowing for an integrative and interactive learning experience. Students are encouraged and expected to prepare for and participate in seminars so that they get the maximum benefit from teaching sessions.

All seminars offer dedicated teaching, open only to postgraduate students, including postgraduate research students, where the module option is relevant to a student’s doctoral research.

Modular assessments

Students are given the opportunity to complete formative assessments in both the autumn and spring term, which acts as a practice assignment that does not contribute towards their degree. Rather, formative assessments provide valuable feedback which can be utilised constructively when completing summative assessments.

All summative assessments take place at the end of the spring term; this includes assessments for autumn options. Modules are assessed by either essay, examination, or a combination of both.
