About

A master’s degree in law is a fantastic way for law graduates to develop a specialisation. This Business and Financial Law programme, offered by University of East London, focuses your study on business law, introducing you to the contemporary legal and regulatory issues that govern international business and finance.

Overview

You’ll study core modules that cover critical issues in the field, with the chance to choose from an extensive list of additional optional modules that address themes like the World Trade Organisation, Corporate Social Responsibility and Banking Law.

Alongside the optional modules, you may choose to either write a 15,000 word dissertation or conduct a work-based project that will give you valuable experience of dealing with a specific legal issue in detail.

The Business and Financial Law programme, offered by University of East London, is perfect for lawyers and law graduates looking for career development, although all of our LLM courses can be studied by students without a background in law, since you will be trained in the necessary analytical and legal skills.
