Course summary

Drawing on both the civil and common law tradition, this unique programme offers the ideal platform for you to develop expertise in core areas of private law from a comparative perspective, and to benefit from research-led teaching from legal scholars who are recognised as experts in their field.

It provides you with the opportunity to obtain an advanced qualification that is both academically rigorous and professionally beneficial, by combining the comparative study of key areas of private law with the dynamics of European harmonisation initiatives.

The programme is particularly suited to those who have studied a range of private law subjects at undergraduate level, although it is also open to those whose undergraduate law degree has combined other specialisations.

Career opportunities

This programme will provide you with an excellent foundation for both doctoral research in the growing field of comparative and European private law and legal practice in transnational law firms, or employment in international organisations.
