LLM International Business Law
The LLM International Business Law has been designed by the School of Law’s internationally renowned Professor of International Business Law to offer a research-led programme of study that meets the practical needs of international business.
"I firmly believe that postgraduate law students should be taught by experts. That is why the lecturers and tutors leading the key international business law units are published and research-informed professionals in the field. Teaching across the LLM programme is informed by my ongoing cutting edge research in international business law and dispute resolution. It is extremely rewarding for me to bring my experience into the lectures to enrich the student learning experience in both the International Commercial Arbitration unit and the International and European Business Law unit that I lead on this programme. In a practice-oriented subject such as international commercial arbitration, I believe in students learning by gaining hands-on experience in simulated arbitrations and presentations."
