Course summary

Our new LLM in International Commercial Law course has been designed to challenge and cultivate your knowledge around international commercial law. Aimed at graduates in law and related fields such as business and those already working in legal practice this new course has been designed to give you the opportunity to deepen your knowledge and understanding of international commercial law and closely related topics. You will examine the obligations of buyers and sellers in commercial transactions, the rights attaching to ownership of goods and intellectual property, potential regulatory barriers to trade in goods, the tax consequences that flow from commercial transactions, and the various legal remedies that exist in international commercial law. You will be taught by experts in the field of international commercial law, with assessment designed to test both critical understanding of the law, as well as its practical application. In addition to this, you will benefit from over 50 years’ experience of teaching law and have the opportunity to participate in the Coventry University Global Leaders programme (subject to application and costs), and study our CMI accredited module. Please note that staff are also subject to change. Please see the Accreditation and Professional Recognition section for more details on our CMI accredited module. This course can be offered on a part-time basis, with study over two years. Whilst we would like to give you all the information about our part-time offering here, it is tailored for each course each year depending on the number of part-time applicants. Therefore, the part-time teaching arrangements vary. You can make an enquiry about part-time study using our online forms, for UK and for EU/International students.
