Founded in the ancient silk and spice routes, international trade and commerce has spread to become the most significant activity of any modern economy.
The provision of goods and services in other countries increased dramatically in the second half of the 20th century, and today continues to reveal new markets, products and commercial practices.
Our LLM in International Commercial Law focuses on the legal regulation from the perspective of a common law jurisdiction, and the challenges presented through membership of the international and European communities.
For September 2020 entry: In order to take advantage of new approaches to learning and teaching, as well as developments in industry to benefit our students we regularly review all of our courses.
This course is currently going through this process and we will update this page in July to give you full information about what we will be offering once the review process has concluded.
“This really is a career-enhancing course, not just within the legal profession but in a variety of industries. Our graduates have gone on to work as patent associates, senior lawyers and associate directors.”
Dr Melanie Klinkner, Senior Lecturer in Law
