About Commercial Law Dual (London and Singapore), LLM - at Centre for Commercial Law Studies, Queen Mary, University of London (QMUL)

Take this unique opportunity to study commercial law in two major commercial hubs: London and Singapore. Gain a broad overview of Asian commercial law in Singapore and, through your intensive specialist study in London, an in-depth understanding of commercial law and its application to everyday practice.

  • Undertake a highly intensive 16-month degree programme where you will gain insight into the legal underpinnings of commerce in the West and East
  • Gain a greater variety and breadth of experience than a standard one-year programme
  • Be awarded a Dual LLM in Commercial Law (London and Singapore) from Queen Mary University of London in the UK and Singapore Management University (SMU) in Singapore
  • Study at two universities which are internationally recognised for their deep understanding of the global markets and their importance in legal education
  • Enjoy extensive extracurricular activities including networking, careers advice and social events

This course has a major focus on international and comparative issues, and on the importance of legal principles, rules and laws underlying business and commercial relationships. You will be equipped with a thorough understanding of key aspects of commercial law from multiple perspectives. The programme will allow you to develop an in-depth understanding and explore transnational approaches to resolving commercial problems.

Gain the ability to assess critically and comment upon the current state of the law from an international and transnational perspective. You will be able to conduct advanced research in this area of law.

You will stay connected to both universities throughout the 16-month programme. Lecturers from both universities will be available to you throughout your studies, whether you are in Singapore or in London.
