Course Description

The LLM International Business Law is designed to give students a critical understanding of international law as it relates to commercial activities in a global economy. The programme allows students to examine complementary law and business subjects which affect international business practice. The programme aims to offer a platform for professional careers where legal expertise in cross-border business, informed by commercial awareness, is essential. The programme is made up of core legal modules and electives. The electives cover both legal and international business subjects. The inclusion of European law topics with International law subjects allows students to examine how law influences the development of supranational markets built up from a number of independent states. The EU modules provide a model for exploring the legal regulation of ?free trade? areas elsewhere in the world. There is also a dissertation, which gives students the opportunity to pursue an international business law research interest in some detail, thus increasing their specialisation. In addition, one module focuses on the students own personal development and employability. This course responds to the need for lawyers, business managers, policy makers and other professionals functioning in commercial fields by giving them a sophisticated understanding of the legal issues affecting the governance and practice of international trade. The advantage of this course is that it does not approach the topic of law in isolation, but seek to provide a business and commercial context to assist the understanding and evaluation of the way the law functions. There is an induction programme in legal skills and methods at the start of the course, which can make this course of interest to non-law graduates as well as those who already hold degrees in law. Students and practitioners who complete the LLM often find the experience enjoyable whilst raising their own profile in terms of employability in a competitive legal world. It is recognised that most Universities require a master?s qualification, as a minimum, to teach.
