The LLM courses at Lincoln Law School are designed to provide students with the opportunity to develop a solid bedrock of knowledge and skills to pursue, or further develop their careers, whether they be in legal practice, working in business or industry, working for governmental or international organisations, for non-governmental organisations, or in academia.
For those pursuing legal careers, there has been an increasing demand for lawyers with the necessary knowledge of international law and international business law to provide services to clients both in terms of transactional and litigation work. This is particularly true in the case of commercial law firms undertaking work for multinational corporations and those businesses involved in multi-jurisdictional transactions or disputes.
Similarly our LLM programmes aim to equip students with the necessary knowledge and skills required to conduct transnational work within business and industry. The understanding of the legal issues at stake in terms of international economic law, international trade law, and international investment law aim to provide a grounding for those pursuing careers in firms that either invest and operate in a number of different jurisdictions or which have strong commercial relationships with investors or customers in other countries.
† Some courses may offer optional modules. The availability of optional modules may vary from year to year and will be subject to minimum student numbers being achieved. This means that the availability of specific optional modules cannot be guaranteed. Optional module selection may also be affected by staff availability.
For eligible students, there are more ways than ever before to fund your postgraduate study, whether you want to do a taught or research course.
