Program Description:

Aims of the course The course is centred on the needs of the modern professional lawyer working or intending to work in an international and business environment. The course of legal study is set in a broad context while giving you a detailed knowledge and depth of understanding. Tuition is through seminars for which you will be expected to come prepared and willing to contribute to a discussion. Participation will help you develop analytical, critical, communication and research skills useful not only for your studies but on which you can build in your future career. A compulsory one-week foundation programme precedes the first semester to provide you with a foundation in common law and EC legal principles, skills of information technology, legal writing, library research and examination technique. Entry requirements Normally a UK or overseas degree in law of at least lower second class or its equivalent. Alternatively, a non-law degree plus a professional legal qualification. Prior certificated learning may be given credit. Course structure You can choose to take either eight taught modules and a research essay or six taught law modules and a dissertation. Students who wish to undertake a dissertation or are required to do so by employers/sponsors must discuss the topic of the dissertation with the Course Leader before undertaking it, so that an appropriate topic can be approved and an appropriate supervisor allocated. You will study some compulsory modules, and then may choose from those modules listed here or from any of the extensive list of comparative business law modules OR approved modules in related non-law postgraduate courses offered by other departments of the University. You will not be permitted to take modules from other courses if broadly the same material is covered - check with the department for further information.
