Prepare or further your international legal career by studying of a range of commercial modules which highlight issues of practical and contemporary relevance with this International Commercial Law LLM from University of Dundee.



This International Commercial Law LLM from University of Dundee offers a broad range of core and optional modules across the different fields of international commercial law, from international litigation to intellectual property law to international economic law.

You will have the opportunity to learn, discuss and debate a wide range of subjects such as the law on patents, on transnational contracts, on financial services, and on international investments.

You'll also be able to gain interdisciplinary knowledge of certain topics including natural resources law, and energy law.

From the beginning, we will encourage you to think strategically about the best choice of modules to prepare you for your future career.


We offer an induction programme in legal research skills at the start of each semester. This ensures that you understand the UK and European legal systems, and can find and use the resources that you will need. You will also learn what is required of you in a study environment where you may be learning more independently than previously.

Most of your teaching will be in student-led seminars where you will read extensively in advance, and discussion will be facilitated by the lecturer. Sometimes there will be a lecture component, e.g. at the start of the class to structure the discussion.

All our modules are delivered by experts in their field. Guest lecturers may also visit, either within modules or as a separate event. We offer a wide variety of external activities including a residential study trip for all students.

You will devise, research, and write a dissertation in the summer, which will consider a question relevant to international commercial law. This will let you demonstrate your research skills, and there will be classes to help you prepare for this.


Our graduates in international commercial law have gone on to work in private practice, as in-house counsel, within government or the civil service, or within the financial sector.

There are also opportunities at international organisations, non-governmental organisations, think-tanks and in academia.
