The International Commercial Law LLM balances the best of a rigorous, traditional legal education with a contemporary perspective. Our areas of specialisation address today’s most important business and legal challenges, including the study of commercial relationships in the international arena, the role and impact of electronic commerce, and the gradual harmonisation of international commercial law. This Master's is not merely about what you learn in the classroom, it's also about actual practice in today’s world of globalisation and international commerce. That is why the LLM provides, in addition to a strong academic dimension, a concentrated, real-world-oriented legal education. The course offers you the opportunity to develop strong academic and practical skills in a highly competitive and intellectually satisfying area of law. It's ideally suited to you if you come from a commercial law, international business, management, or economics background. You'll have the opportunity to explore your own ideas, gain knowledge and enhance transferable skills in a supportive environment. You'll benefit from a strong programme of visiting speakers, excellent online materials and learning resources, top-quality instruction and a professional and practical focus in a School with a strong research profile.
