This programme enables you to understand, examine and apply fundamental concepts of international commercial law, benefiting from the presence of the Surrey International Law Centre, based in the School of Law.
As a law student at the University of Surrey, you will tackle the fundamental questions facing society, develop understanding of key areas of English, European and international law, and investigate and evaluate ideas such as fairness, justice and equality.
The School of Law provides a stimulating and supportive environment for postgraduate study. Working closely with other schools and departments across the University, we provide you with a strong legal education and the guidance to apply your legal understanding in a practical context.
This programme focuses on key conceptual and practical issues in commercial law and business transactions. It is developed to provide a commercial context for career progression in national and international law firms or relevant government departments. It combines traditional study of commercial law and cutting-edge aspects of corporate and commercial law with hands-on practical experience.
The programme is innovative in that it combines the study of aspects of commercial law with a more contextual and critical appreciation of key current debates in corruption, corporate governance and responsibility, corporate crime, and the study of law and development.
Graduates of this programme go on to academic careers, apply their LLM practically as lawyers and solicitors, or take their knowledge of law into international business or consultancy work.
