About International Commercial Law & Practice, LLM - at De Montfort University

This programme develops your ability to critique international commercial law's core and contemporary areas. Drawing upon De Montfort's research expertise in this area, this course examines the theory and practice of international commercial law and assesses the efficacy of the law's processes to regulate commercial transactions. In addition, the programme equips you with an understanding of the methodologies which can be used to pursue research in international commercial law.

The modules cover contractual relationships in international trade, intellectual property, and regulatory aspects affecting transactions and commercial conduct, such as competition laws and those relating to companies and corporate insolvency, all within the international context.

You will learn to critically appraise aspects of international commercial law, practice and procedure to formulate, evaluate and adapt solutions to contemporary problems. Through various assessments, including presentations, case study analysis, individual exercises, report writing, and essay writing, you will independently develop and present legal arguments with a theoretical and conceptual basis to support positions. In addition, you will deepen your understanding of the methodologies which can be used to pursue a career in international commercial law research. 

Key features

  • You will be taught by legal experts who have a wealth of experience. These will include solicitors, professors and practitioners with specialist knowledge of employment law and practice.
  • You will benefit from the block teaching delivery mode. The block teaching approach widens participation in the context of legal study. A more concentrated weekly schedule allows you to focus on one subject at a time instead of several at once. This means that you will be able to focus closely on each subject and absorb your learning material in more depth whilst working more closely with your tutors and coursemates.
  • In our International Perspectives of Company and Corporate Insolvency Law module, you will have the opportunity to compare the strengths and weaknesses of UK company law against European and international perspectives.
  • You can expand your knowledge of the law in dedicated learning spaces, including access to a crown court – a site of trials since the Middle Ages, a training courtroom and a simulated Judge's Chambers suite. In addition, the university's Hugh Aston Building has a dedicated law library exclusively for law students, allowing you to practise scenario-based learning.
  • You will develop and apply values, skills, knowledge and behaviours that will enable them to contribute to the development of a just, peaceful and sustainable world.

Entry requirements
