    New Modules for the LLM degrees in Commercial Law

    The Law School offers specialised LLM Programmes in Maritime, International Trade and Commercial Law. These programmes attract students from all around the world and they are regarded very highly by prospective employers operating in the shipping, trade, insurance and banking sectors. Currently 14 modules are on offer to students studying at Swansea University for their LLM degrees. As from 2010-11, the Law School will give students the opportunity to follow two new specialised modules in the realm of commercial law. Company Law in a Comparative Context will seek to explore the underlying purpose for company regulation in the modern business environment and to consider the way that this area of law increasingly transcends jurisdictions as a result of international trade and the breaking down of barriers by virtue of advances in technology.  This module will consider these jurisdictional issues by reference to regulation as in the EU and US, identifying common issues and convergence, and where there is divergence, how the basic problems are addressed and what this means for the company concerned and its stakeholders. The other new module, Law of Intellectual Assets Management and Transactions, will explore the legal nature of intangible assets of a company from an international perspective; the changing innovation environment within which they need to be managed within a global context; the different ways in which the law may be used to protect product/service differentiation from business competitors and the application of the criminal law to on-line trading within the global market place.
