Course summary

About the course

The University of Hertfordshire’s LLM International Commercial Law degree is the ideal course to equip you for a specialist career in the area of international commerce. The combination of compulsory and optional modules will ensure that you have a solid grounding on which you can build with your chosen specialisms. You will study two compulsory modules: International Commercial Law and Alternative Dispute Resolution. International Commercial Law will cover such topics as the choice of law/jurisdiction clauses, different types of international contracts and their respective implications for the parties involved, the international conventions applicable to international commerce, the role of documentation, and finance and insurance. The Alternative Dispute Resolution module will examine commercial arbitration and investment-treaty arbitration and the issues involved, mediation as a means of dispute resolution, and the skills and attributes required of a mediator. Both modules are assessed by way of written coursework. The Alternative Dispute Resolution module also includes a practical assessment, which might take the form of an oral presentation to demonstrate your knowledge and understanding of international arbitration, along with the necessary practical skills.

Why choose this course?

You can be sure that the teaching you receive at Hertfordshire Law School is regularly reviewed and updated to make certain that it continues to be relevant in today’s rapidly changing international commercial environment. Taught by specialists in their field and underpinned by cutting-edge research, it focuses on the development of the intellectual, transferable, interpersonal and practical skills you will need for your future in the world of international commerce. The range of optional modules that are available enable you to tailor your course according to the career route that you plan to follow, so you can be sure you will leave with the skills and knowledge you need to thrive. You can combine similar pathways if you wish, and graduate with a named joint pathway as well. In addition to the compulsory and optional modules, the University’s co-curricular programme is specially designed to enhance these skills.

What will I study?

As you would expect from Hertfordshire Law School, the module teaching is delivered by specialist lecturers who are at the forefront of their chosen disciplines. Class seminars are supported by practical work, group discussions, role plays and debates to develop your vital skills of negotiation, persuasion, presentation and teamwork. You will also be required to deepen and supplement your knowledge via independent study. The written assignments are the perfect opportunities to apply your learning and demonstrate what you know! A peer support and mentoring scheme is available to ease you into your studies, and to offer further opportunities to develop your mentoring, teamwork and leadership skills.

Careers

Specialists in international commerce with the knowledge and skills to mediate in the area of international disputes are in demand in all sectors of industry, private and public, in organisations of all types and sizes. Successful completion of this degree will enable you to explore avenues into working as an in-house lawyer, in consultancy, or even in academia or research.
