    New LL.M. in International Business Law for September 2011

    We are delighted to announce the introduction of new Masters Programme in International Business Law. Whereas our existing Programme in International Commercial Law places an emphasis on trade and broader commercial responsibilities our new offering will be focused on the practical difficulties experienced by international business. The new Programme, whilst offering a broad spectrum of International Business Law modules also allows for specialisation in new and dynamic issues such as the law relating to the intangible assets of the business such as trademarks, patents and copyright.

    There is an international demand for a Programme which can offer specialist knowledge of International Business Law reflecting the changing commercial, social, political and technical realities of the global economy. Students will gain an in-depth legal knowledge of issues and the practical skills acquired will make them an invaluable asset to international commercial organisations. The Programme will not only have appeal to the aspiring practising lawyer looking for a high level career in an international law firm or multinational company but also for legal advisers to small/medium sized enterprises. Applicants will require a good undergraduate degree either in law or a closely related discipline.

    The Programme is divided into two parts. Part I comprises the taught element, which is worth a total of 120 credits (60 ECTS credits). Students are required to take 4 modules with at least two options drawn from International Intellectual Property Law, Law of Intellectual Assets Management & Transactions, Company Law in a Comparative Context or Transnational Credit and Security Law. The additional modules available to students are E-Commerce Law, European Competition Law, International Litigation and Arbitration Law.

    Assessment for Part I modules will be by an equally weighted combination of coursework and examinations. In addition, there will be a compulsory research skills course in the first semester designed to offer students guidance with research preparation. Part II consists of two supervised research projects on agreed topics relating to International Business Law of not more than 20,000 words in total.
