Course summary

With our LLM in International & Commercial Law, you’ll discover more about the legal framework governing the international community and the legal issues surrounding global markets. Knowledge of world trade - and the legal framework surrounding it - has never been more important. On this course, you'll look beyond national jurisdictions and get to grips with the issues of public international law and international commercial law. You can study one of three endorsed pathways or follow the non-endorsed pathway. The three endorsed pathways are: Business Human Rights & the Environment; Intellectual Property; and Ocean Law & Policy. To gain an endorsement, you will need (after starting your studies) to: gain approval to study for the endorsement; and gain approval for - and then complete - a dissertation which must be on an area related to the endorsement; and thirdly study the compulsory, 30-credit, module* that relates to the endorsement. (*For Ocean Law & Policy, the module compulsory for the endorsement is ‘The Law of Maritime Security: Navies & the Rule of Law at Sea’; for Intellectual Property, the module compulsory for the endorsement is ‘Intellectual Property Law’; and for the Business Human Rights & the Environment, the module compulsory for the endorsement is ‘Business Human Rights & the Environment’.) If you are interested in any of the endorsed pathways, please contact the LLM team by email at [email protected] for full information, including details of each endorsement’s compulsory and optional modules and the overall course structure. As an LLM student, you'll be assessed through coursework, class presentations and a dissertation, so you acquire a broad range of skills. What you should know about this course

  • The LLM focuses on the law and legal framework underpinning the international community, as well as legal issues affecting trade and global markets.
  • Overseas students without experience of a common law jurisdiction will need to take Common Law Foundations instead of one of the optional 15 credit courses in term 1
  • If you studied an LLB at Greenwich and took any modules at an undergraduate level or had a Pro Bono Placement, you cannot take these same module(s) again for the LLM.
