This programme covers the key conceptual debates in commercial law and the role of different aspects of commercial law in their socio-legal and political contexts.
You will develop a critical appreciation of international trade, gain a deeper knowledge of the regulatory frameworks and criminal law provisions which impact upon commercial organisations and be able to understand and evaluate how the law operates in both corporate and personal insolvency. You will also learn to analyse theoretical arguments about the rationale of and justifications for insolvency law and will develop an understanding of how intellectual property rights are protected at national, European and international levels by applying intellectual property principles in specific contexts.
The programme is innovative in that it combines the traditional study of aspects of commercial law with a more contextual and critical appreciation of key current debates in corruption, corporate governance and responsibility, corporate crime and the study of law and development.
Graduates of this programme go on to academic careers, apply their LLM practically as lawyers and solicitors, or take their knowledge of law into international business or consultancy work.
