Course summary

Overview

This LLM is the only course of its kind to teach core legal courses from a distinctly transnational perspective. With the globalisation of law at its centre, it prepares graduates for a career in a fast-changing global context, teaching competence to analyse complex legal problems through solid legal doctrine, training in transnational legal cultures, lawyerly practice, legal theory, and law’s global socio- economics.

Course detail

The course will cover key areas in public law from a transnational law perspective, including human rights, development, refugee law, criminal law, policing and security and the interplay between domestic and international organisations. With view to transnational private law, it covers corporate governance, corporate restructuring, commercial arbitration, labour law, business and human rights, and family law. It will also offer modules in transnational legal theory and legal sociology as well as a module on law, artificial intelligence and society. This pathway provides an in-depth engagement with required areas of transnational law today, it offers an unprecedented opportunity for students preparing for a career in global private practice, as in-house counsel or international public service, the non-profit sector or an international organisation or with adjudicatory bodies, agencies and networks.

Teaching and assessment

In the first and second semester you study your selection of taught modules (half and full). These are in most cases assessed in the third semester (May/June) by written examination, or in some cases by the submission of an assessed essay. Dissertation or research essays must be submitted in September, after the May/June examinations.

Career prospects

In a competitive world we can give you the competitive edge to take your career to the next level. That’s why you’ll find our LLM programme is supplemented by opportunities to develop your skills and professional networks. The result is that students are presented with a wide range of employment destinations when they leave; from positions at the European Central Bank, European Commission and UN to commercial roles as investment bank analysts, tax or public affairs advisers, as well as careers in the legal profession; accountancy; management consultancy; human rights organisations and other voluntary bodies; academia.
