Course summary

Our LLMs from our our new Master's in Law suite of programmes are designed for law and non-law graduates who want to explore the practical application of a particular, specialist area of the law. Study face to face or online.

Course Details

This course has been developed to explore in detail the types of rules, policies and controls put in place to determine the behaviour of an international corporation, and the intended outcome of those measures. It covers areas such as the different models of corporate governance, convergence and path dependence theories, harmonisation of corporate governance codes and the future of global corporate governance. It will also cover the role of the company secretary, the board of directors, the relationship between the board and its shareholders, disclosure and accountability. Taking a practical look at how to identify, set and uphold an international corporate governance means that you will be able to enrich your understanding and skillset in this area, with the support of experienced practitioners who can demonstrate real-life examples to contextualise what you learn.

When you study the LLM International Corporate Governance with us you will:

  • Be taught by subject matter experts, former and current practitioners and research and teaching focused academics
  • Focus on legal practice, not just theory
  • Benefit from strategic partnerships with firms, regulators and accreditation bodies
  • Learn about Legal Technology by selecting to study modules in legal technology
  • Improve your employability by gaining important transferable skills and mapping your career with our careers team

The award-linked module for this programme (International Corporate Governance) will aim to put international corporate governance in context, enabling you to learn how to apply complex theoretical concepts to real world client situations and give you an all-encompassing insight into the mechanics of international corporate operation.

In addition to the International Corporate Governance module, you’ll have the chance to select three other elective modules that interest you, as well as complete a dissertation that allows you to explore an area linked to International Corporate Governance through independent research.

In addition to a general induction to the programme, there is a two-week induction covering the Key Principles of the English Legal System. This is compulsory for non-law students, but also open to law students wanting a refresher in the fundamentals of the law of England and Wales. This would be useful for any student who has taken a considerable break from legal education.

To help prepare you for your dissertation you’ll study a range of compulsory and further optional Research Methods Training sessions in your first terms.

Assessment

Modules are assessed by a three hour unseen written examination or 4,500 word coursework assignment.

Attendance at one of our UK campuses (or an approved overseas centre by prior arrangement) is required for all examinations, including for online study. The default campus location for online study is London.
