Study Postgraduate Law

Taught postgraduate study at Buckingham Law School

The main taught Master’s programme at Buckingham is the LLM in International and Commercial Law. This offers a wide range of modules but also the opportunity to specialise in one of three areas:

  • International Trade and Maritime Law
  • Corporate Law
  • Financial Services Law

The main objective of postgraduate study at Buckingham is for you to develop the ability to assess and analyse the law in the fields of your choice. To be effective, a lawyer, or anyone practising in the area of International and Commercial Law in a business capacity, must be able to analyse clearly what are often complex problems, to arrive at rational and informed decisions and to be confident in implementing those decisions. It is also essential that you are able to convince other people (clients or business associates) that your analysis of the situation is an appropriate one.
