About European Business Law at Faculty of Laws, University of Malta

The Master of Laws in European Business Law is a new specialist LLM which is based on a grouping of subjects offered also on the general LLM in European and Comparative Law. However, registering for this degree means that the student will obtain a degree with the specific title of LLM in European Business Law, and be able to market himself or herself as a specialist graduate lawyer in that specific field of law. So this is the degree for those who are decided to specialise in the business law of Europe and wish to be known as such.

As with the general LLM offered by the Department, the LLM in European Business Law is mainly a taught course on which students do directed reading and research and write papers for presentation in seminars (group sessions) which are then led by the course professor. It also includes an important dissertation component. The first aim is that of providing postgraduate specialisation in European Business Law and related comparative law to holders of a good first degree in law. The programme of studies includes three compulsory courses and a free choice of the remaining study units from a list of elective subjects. In principle, the comparative (national law) dimension is worked into most subjects, while also being the principal methodology employed in a number of study units. The level of the degree compares with the level of leading LL.M programmes in other European universities, this being certified on an annual basis by an external examiner from a European university. The second aim is to prepare the student for a specialist career, whether in private practice in Malta or abroad, in the European Union Institutions, in other international organizations, or as advisors to government and other entities, among other possible careers.

The programme provides an in-depth specialisation in European Business law. It does so against the backdrop of a fast-evolving economic, financial and social environment in Europe and beyond, as also the constant and complex evolution of the European Union itself.
