The International Business and Corporate Law stream of the LLM at the University of Leicester specialises in the complex issues, rules, and regulations in business transactions and corporate law at national and international levels.
The stream covers legal principles related to corporate transactions, activities, governance and finance and practical challenges in the organisation and operation of multinational corporations and cross-border business arrangements. It provides a critical understanding of the policy considerations at the heart of corporate law while developing your ability to analyse, interpret and apply economic, financial, theoretical and socio-legal material to the most pressing contemporary problems in corporate law and practice.
You will need to study two compulsory core modules, 6 options from the rich choice of stream-specific modules and undertake a dissertation on a related topic to gain your specialisation.
In addition to advancing your knowledge of the intricate mechanics of governance and regulation in the global economy, the course affords you essential transferable skills, stimulates your capacity for independent legal research and strengthens your oral and written communication ability.
