Course summary

This area of law provides a basis for international business transactions and the development of international markets.

The past few decades have seen enormous growth in global commerce, increasing the importance and prominence of international commercial law. This LLM will present you with the opportunity to understand how businesses operate globally and how states and the international system regulate the flow of trade and finance. The increasing relevance of this pathway makes it an excellent choice for those seeking opportunities in the commercial world and understanding of the global challenges it faces.

The School has a leading reputation for excellence in its research and teaching in this area and the modules available on the International Commercial Law pathway draw on these strengths.

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.

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.
