Programme Description

This Law Postgraduate Programme seeks to extend and develop students’ understanding of the law relating to the core aspects of commercial law including contract law, dispute settlement, competition, corporate governance, aspects of international banking and finance, intellectual property and employment. The course aims to provide opportunities for students to gain an understanding of a range of global issues affecting commercial law and practice and to gain knowledge, understanding and the requisite skills in preparation for employment in commercial legal practice and commercial organisations both in the UK and abroad.

The programme is based on an understanding of law as both a vocational discipline and a subject of academic study. The programme seeks to reflect this by:

·         Equipping students with an advanced understanding of various aspects of commercial law and commercial and business practice, focusing in particular on current developments from both an academic and practice perspective.   

·         Developing the analytical skills needed to make reasoned, creative and original judgments regarding the development and practical application of commercial law. 

·         Assisting students to develop greater intellectual autonomy and to become independent learners.  Equipping students with the research skills and methodological knowledge needed to conduct advanced legal research. 

·         Refining students’ ability to communicate effectively complex ideas in oral and written form.

·         Developing students’ ability to look reflectively at their own professional practice.

·         Encouraging ethical decision-making, sustainability and global citizenship.

·         Assisting students to develop the qualities and transferable skills necessary for employment requiring the exercise of initiative and personal responsibility and decision-making.

·         Encouraging lifelong learning and personal development and thereby enabling students to be able to work with self-direction and originality and to make a positive contribution to society
