Course summary

Course overview

The LL.M International Business Law meets the current demand for specialist knowledge and skills in the rapidly expanding fields of international commercial and business law. It provides students with the opportunity to explore, in-depth, the legal regulation of the world of international business. Academically rigorous, the LL.M will expose students to a practical real-world application of the law.

The LL.M is taught by an outstanding team of professional research active staff who have extensive practice and academic experience. The programme aims to enhance knowledge and critical thinking in this area.

The programme provides advanced critical analysis of the key themes and emerging challenges facing businesses, in a global context such as in international/global business environments and innovation and enterprise.

This course is run in partnership with Robert Kennedy College and applications should be made directly at their website.

Course summary

The programme aims to provide students with a rigorous academic experience whilst also developing innovative methods of delivery, particularly in the use of technology enhanced learning. Much emphasis is placed on ‘deep’ learning whereby learners grasp and apply principles to different contexts and experiences. Skill usage is integrated with subject knowledge, and skill and subject coverage is designed to be incremental. Methods of innovative delivery use pedagogical approaches such as active learning from quizzes and experiments, role play and debates, enquiry-based learning and interactive learning using group discussions and clinical legal education methods.

Students are encouraged to critically reflect critically on their skills development in order to develop their ability to make sound professional judgments. This allows students to actively apply and integrate the theory of law with legal and professional skills.

The overall aims of the programme are:

  • To provide an advanced understanding of the corporate and legal responsibilities and governance in an international business context.
  • To provide opportunities for the systematic development of the skills of objective analysis, evaluation and presentation to enable students to further develop confidence in effectively appraising and implementing market strategies in the context of international business law.
  • To develop an ability to apply knowledge and understanding of business law in relation to complex issues affecting global trade and corporate governance, both systematically and creatively, to improve business and management practice.
  • To provide a stimulating academic environment, rooted in the experiences of the student, but firmly based upon the values of academic openness and critical appraisal.
  • To explore and develop a comprehensive understanding of academic theory in order to inform and improve current business and commercial and legal practice in an international business context.
  • To critically apply ‘action based learning’ in the form of experiential activities and enable students to develop and manage solutions to complex circumstances, whilst analysing the impact this will have on the organisation with an emphasis on the international business context.

Graduate destinations

The LLM qualification can help career development in the legal sector (including for those practicing law in commercial and business fields) as well as the Business and Management industry, helping promotion to middle and senior management. To meet the constant evolution of global business law development, we offer the opportunity to gain the qualification in one year.
