Programme Overview

This programme will provide you with an in-depth understanding of commercial law and its application to everyday practice. You will also develop the ability to assess critically and comment upon the current state of the law from an international and transnational perspective, and to conduct advanced research in this area. The programme has a major focus on international and comparative issues, and on the importance of legal principles, rules and laws underlying business and commercial relationships. By the end of your studies, you will be equipped with a thorough understanding of key aspects of commercial law from multiple perspectives, enabling you to develop an in-depth understanding of different regions' approaches to resolving commercial problems. 


Undertaking a masters programme is a serious commitment, with weekly contact hours being in addition to numerous hours of independent learning and research needed to progress at the required level.  The dual degree is particularly demanding to accommodate two LLMs within a 15-month period.

When coursework or examination deadlines are approaching independent learning hours may need to increase significantly. Contact the course convenor for precise information on the number of contact hours per week for this programme.
