Course Description

The postgraduate LLM International Business Law course provides you with analytical and reflective skills and expertise in international business law. Successful completion will give you a recognised postgraduate qualification in International Business Law.

Within industry, international business law is a fast-changing and increasingly complex area. This course provides a learning experience which will enable you to develop your academic ability and enhance your performance in employment, whilst further developing your career opportunities.

You’ll have the opportunity to enhance your employability skills by gaining additional qualifications in the areas of alternative dispute resolution (specifically, international arbitration and mediation). Past graduates have gained or developed careers in legal private practice, public body legal services, and in corporate and commercial fields.

Course Content

The aim of the dissertation is to work in a self-defined field with the objective of producing a substantial piece of research based on critical analysis and independent thought. The only restriction on the choice of dissertation will be the appropriateness of the law chosen (which can be any area of law) as agreed with the dissertation supervisor and the dissertation tutor. The role of the dissertation supervisor underpins this part of the LLM. It is the function of the supervisor to guide the student in his/her choice of subject matter and to provide a focal point during the second and third semesters acting as support and guidance.
