Course summary

Overview

This well-known specialist LLM, led by a team of reputed academics, explores the complex legal issues arising out of international banking, trade and business from the standpoint of both transactional perspective and dispute settlement mechanisms (litigation and arbitration). Particularly oriented towards practice in these fields, the modules have a distinctly international and comparative dimension whilst at the same time drawing strongly on the rich tradition and experience of English law.

Course detail

The LLM will focus its core on international trading, financial/banking and energy transactions (e.g. modules such as International Trade and Shipping Law and the Law of International Finance) and the resolution of international business disputes through arbitration and/or business litigation (e.g. modules such as International Commercial & Investment Arbitration).It is strongly oriented towards legal practice in these fields and therefore has a support group of relevant comparative law modules that are regarded as being useful to working in this area, such as Transnational & Comparative Commercial & Financial Law and International & Comparative Law of Trusts. There are several energy and natural resources law modules on the LLM programme, examined from an international and comparative perspective, such as International & Comparative Oil & Gas Law. The regulation of global trade under the aegis of the World Trade Organisation and the taxation of international business are also covered.

Teaching and assessment

This highly respected LLM offers a unique student experience by taking advantage of our outstanding and wide ranging academic reputation in this field, with emphasis on innovative and problem-solving teaching methods as well as our comparative and international outlook. In the first and second semester you study your selection of taught modules (half and full). These are in most cases assessed in the third semester (May/June) by written examination, or in some cases by the submission of an assessed essay. Dissertation or research essays must be submitted in September, after the May/June examinations.
