Course summary

Course description

Due to the ongoing impact of the global pandemic we have had to evaluate all of our courses to ensure that we adhere to Government guidelines to protect the health and wellbeing of our staff and students. This means that as we work through these changes the modules, delivery methods and assessments shown, including those shown for future years, are subject to change.

This stream of the LLM is ideal if you are looking for a career in the globalised economy and seeking opportunities in the highly competitive area of international markets and the commercial world. This specialism will equip you with the advanced legal skills and knowledge needed in the complex and rapidly changing field of international commercial law.

Our International Commercial Law LLM stream offers an impressive range of specialist topics and allows you to choose to follow a path of study to suit your specialisms and needs. You will choose eight modules from our comprehensive list. You can select from a range of subjects dealing with international trade and finance, corporate law banking law, competition law, intellectual property and the world trading system. In order to gain the specialism in International Commercial Law, you will need to select 90 credits from modules within this stream and complete your dissertation on a topic within international commercial law. This gives you the freedom and flexibility to explore other subject areas that interest you.

The course will equip you with advanced legal study and research skills and our seminar-based teaching will ensure you have the opportunity to develop your verbal and written presentation skills, which will further enhance your professional prospects.

When you apply for this course, you will apply for the Master of Laws (LLM). Once you have arrived in Leicester, you will be able to specialise in International Commercial Law through your module choices. Your degree certificate will reflect your chosen specialism.

Teaching and learning

You will be taught mainly through interactive seminars where you will test your understanding by engaging in critical discussion of the topics with your fellow students. Before each seminar you will research the answers to a set of questions and come prepared to discuss your ideas and findings, sometimes working in small groups.

Careers and employability

Our Law Fair is held annually and attracts over 40 law firms and other graduate employers.

Two dedicated law careers tutors are on hand to discuss career options, upcoming opportunities and give advice about different firms.

We host a wide range of external speakers every year, representing the whole legal profession.
