Knowledge of world trade - and the legal framework surrounding it - has never been more important. Legal employers now place a high premium on graduates with international commercial law skills. On this course, you'll look beyond national jurisdictions and get to grips with the issues of public international law and international commercial law.
You can study one of three endorsed pathways or follow the non-endorsed pathway. The three endorsed pathways are: Business Human Rights & the Environment; Intellectual Property; and Ocean Law & Policy. To gain an endorsement, you will need (after starting your studies) to: gain approval to study for the endorsement; and gain approval for - and then complete - a dissertation which must be on an area related to the endorsement; and thirdly study the compulsory, 30-credit, module* that relates to the endorsement. (*For Ocean Law & Policy, the module compulsory for the endorsement is ‘The Law of Maritime Security: Navies & the Rule of Law at Sea’; for Intellectual Property, the module compulsory for the endorsement is ‘Intellectual Property Law’; and for the Business Human Rights & the Environment, the module compulsory for the endorsement is ‘Business Human Rights & the Environment’.)
What you should know about this course
The LLM focuses on the law and legal framework underpinning the international community, as well as legal issues affecting trade and global markets.
Overseas students without experience of a common law jurisdiction will need to take Common Law Foundations instead of a Pro Bono placement.
If you studied an LLB International and Commercial Law at University of Greenwich and took Corporate Law, Public International Law or a Pro Bono Placement, you cannot take these same module(s) again for the LLM.
