Course summary

Course Overview

We offer you the chance to create a personal programme of study by drawing from all the postgraduate modules offered by our LLMs in International Development Law and Human Rights, International Economic Law, International Commercial Law, and International Corporate Governance and Financial Regulation. You can also choose a number of options from a list of modules from other departments. You will also develop a dissertation on a topic to be agreed and prepared with guidance from an assigned supervisor.

Teaching and Assessment

You will take a selection of modules totalling 120 CATS followed by a 10,000 word dissertation worth 60 CATS. All our modules are worth 20 CATS and run for one term. Modules will be taken during terms one and two leaving you term three and the summer to complete your dissertation. If you choose to study part time, this will be split over two years of study.

Teaching

You will be taught by academics who are recognised subject experts with UK and international experience. As well as teaching, most are involved in producing leading research, often providing expert advice to outside bodies.

How the course will be taught will depend on the modules you opt to take, but you can expect a mixture of lectures, seminars and group work.

Assessment

Apart from the dissertation, the course incorporates a wide and varying range of assessment methods, which may include essays, examinations, portfolios and presentations.

We regard feedback as a vital part of the assessment process. We seek to help you reach your full potential by identifying the strengths and weaknesses of your work and the actions needed to develop your understanding. You will be given feedback after your assessments each term.
