Course summary

The study of Commercial Law provides an excellent opportunity to immerse yourself in the field. Understanding the principles and challenges of commercial transactions and the regulatory regime for business is essential for anybody who pursues a career in this area.

On our LLM pathway you will grasp the principles and foundations of the commercial law but also examine key current developments and areas of innovation. This programme is ideally suited to students wishing to specialise in English commercial law. Birmingham Law School has a leading reputation for excellence in its research and teaching in this area and the modules available on the Commercial Law pathway draw on these strengths.

This pathway enables you to develop expertise in a range of commercial law subjects, providing you with a strong foundation for your future career.

Our graduates move onto a diverse range of careers, with many going on to work in top law schools and law firms. Some examples of where our recent graduates have gone on to work include: Linklaters LLP, 5 Pump Court Chambers, Bar Pro Bono Unit and Squire Patton Boggs. A number of our postgraduate students go directly from Birmingham to complete the Legal Practice Course or the Bar Professional Training Course.

Links to the Legal Profession

The Law School maintains strong links with the professional world, through our network of alumni and contacts in the barristers’ and solicitors’ professions. These links allow us to put on a series of law careers events throughout the academic year.

Each autumn, the University hosts the Law Fair, in which we welcome over 50 law firms, including some of the largest law firms in the world, to the University's Great Hall. The attendees represent law firms of all sizes and most areas of practice.

The Careers Network

The Careers Network organises regular events including presentations by top law firms and the annual Law Fair. It also runs workshops to help students prepare effective applications and to prepare for their next move. Its events on non-law careers, including journalism, marketing and working with charities, can be of interest to law students.
