You will explore the issues and problems that corporate and commercial law has to deal with. Then discuss and evaluate the law as it exists. Finally, you will critique the law and suggest ways in which it might be improved.
Alongside courses in specific areas of corporate and commercial law, we give you the skills to understand the law through a series of workshops on legal skills. Those workshops also introduce you to different methodologies. You will develop and hone your critical skills and research expertise. You will use these skills to write a dissertation during the second half of your LLM, with expert supervision from our staff.
The list of highly topical modules includes: Current Issues in Company Law and Corporate Governance, International Commercial Arbitration; Principles of Commercial Law; Trade Remedies in WTO Law; Trade Mark Law in a Branded World. You can also choose up to two modules for any other pathway.
Individual modules offered may vary depending on staff availability and the number of students selecting each module
Teaching is informed by the research of renowned academics from the Sheffield Institute of Corporate and Commercial Law.
