Increasingly globalisation has led to a growing demand for commercial lawyers with an understanding of international law. This course meets this need and will help you develop an understanding of the origins of public and private international conflicts and disputes, the causes of cross-border and municipal commercial disputes, and how these can be prevented, managed and resolved.
LLM in the University of Bedfordshire provides you with the opportunity for an in-depth study of the procedural and substantive issues in the field. It is primarily concerned with the regulation of individual, corporate and public conduct in the context of international and commercial conflicts and disputes, including the relevance of issues such as the identification of the relevant courts and tribunals.
