The programme is designed to develop expertise at international and region levels in the issues of trade, commerce and corporations by their legal regulation.

The academic year is divided into 2 semesters with 4 modules each semester. A dissertation is completed over the summer.
Compulsory modules in the first semester:

The remaining six modules can be chosen from those on offer within the International Commercial Law programme, one of the modules may be chosen from an alternative programme if you wish.
We focus on research based learning so most assessment on the LLM is by coursework. Some modules may be assessed by presentation, examination or journal of seminars called a reflective log. Detailed information on the assessment can be found on the LLM Modules page.
Over the summer each qualifying student is required to complete a 15,000 word dissertation on the topic within the subject of International Commercial Law.
