Course summary

Overview

This programme will enable you to develop specialised and detailed knowledge and skills in relation to the legal rules regulating international corporate law and corporate governance issues in the UK, as well as at a global level. You’ll investigate and apply principles and rules found in various areas of corporate law to novel problems, and real-world and hypothetical scenarios. You’ll also critically evaluate the legal rules, regulations, theories and underlying policies relating to Corporate Law.

You’ll have the opportunity to:

  • investigate the corporate mind
  • study contemporary issues in relation to directors’ duties
  • examine the role of corporate governance in the world economy
  • look at issues of regulation in corporate governance, and explore the rights of shareholders in public companies.

Research and professional insight

LLM Corporate Law is offered within the dynamic Centre for Business Law and Practice with all the facilities that a leading research-led university offers. This includes opportunities for co-curricular activities that enhance transferable skills and develop knowledge of the law’s impact in the wider world.

The Centre for Business Law and Practice offers a wide range of experience and expertise in a number of fields, with links to the business community through, for example, the Advisory Board, which includes practitioners amongst its members. Industry and professional speakers regularly participate in conference and seminar events, which you’re encouraged to attend.

The Centre includes amongst its members internationally renowned researchers, not only in corporate law, but in other business fields, and a number of teaching staff are qualified in the legal profession.

Learning and teaching

Our compulsory and optional modules are taught through a range of smaller group seminars and lectures, depending on the individual module. All students meet weekly in the first semester for academic skills training. Support for the dissertation is provided via two group sessions, a number of one-to-one meetings and comment on draft work.

Independent study is integral to this programme – not just to prepare for classes, but to develop research and other critical skills.

Assessment

Assessment is by a variety of methods but primarily involves the writing of an essay of up to 4,500 words at the end of each module. We assess the dissertation through your submission of a written piece of work of up to 15,000 words.

Career opportunities

Our graduates pursue careers in business, legal practice, the public service, or any career where success is built upon the ability to understand, analyse and respond to developments in international corporate law.

Graduates have gone on to work as lawyers and compliance officers as well as working in the education sector. A number of our students also remain with us to pursue a further research career as PhD students.
