This International Commercial Law degree offered at the University of Westminster balances the best of a rigorous, traditional legal education with a contemporary perspective. Our areas of specialisation address today’s most important business and legal challenges, including the study of commercial relationships in the international arena, the role and impact of electronic commerce, and the gradual harmonisation of international commercial law.

This Masters is not merely about what you learn in the classroom, it is also about actual practice in today’s world of globalisation and international commerce. That is why the LLM provides, in addition to a strong academic dimension, a concentrated, real-world-oriented legal education. 

You will have the opportunity to explore your own ideas, gain knowledge and enhance transferable skills in a supportive environment. You will benefit from a strong programme of visiting speakers, excellent online materials and learning resources, top-quality instruction and a professional and practical focus in a department with a strong research profile.

Career Path 

  • The modal student will go on to (or return to) a professional legal career in a UK or overseas law firm, quite often in a Civil Law jurisdiction, interacting with the English Common Law in such areas as shipping or sales disputes. Other students go on to study  to become a Solicitor or Barrister in the UK or abroad.
  • The International Commercial Law LLM qualification also equips graduates to work  in a legal liaison role within small to medium enterprises, especially those involved in the transnational provision of goods and services. In a liaison role the graduate employee is able to informally assess legal risk, and to advise and take legal advice from specialist lawyers, on behalf of their company.
