Overview

In an increasingly globalised economy, almost all businesses operate internationally. Trade, investment and finance cut across national boundaries and are governed by a complex web of transnational laws and regulations. As a result, the demand for professionals with a rich understanding of how law and business operate at a global level continues to grow.

This LLM in International Commercial and Business Law at Keele University offers students with undergraduate qualifications in Law or Business the opportunity for advanced study in both disciplines and prepares them for the challenges of advising companies, governments and other institutions on issues such as the regulation of international trade, foreign investors' rights, and international litigation.

Career

The LLM in International Commercial and Business Law is a gateway to a range of careers and employment opportunities in the private and public sector. These include careers in:

  • transnational law firms
  • multinational corporations
  • auditing firms and relevant national and international agencies (WTO; UN bodies; government; NGOs etc)

Equally, the programme will equip students for further study in the form of a postgraduate research programme, such as a PhD, by providing appropriate research training and an introduction to key thinkers and scholarship.
