Corporate and Commercial Law

First we explore the issues. Then we look at the existing law. After in-depth evaluation, we critique the law and suggest ways it might be improved.

Our distinctive style of teaching sharpens your critical faculties and equips you with the skills to research any unfamiliar area of law. Why? Because leading law firms and international companies tell us that's what they look for in a graduate.

The list of highly topical modules includes: Principles of Company Law and Corporate Governance; European Patent Law; International Commercial Arbitration; Principles of Commercial Law; Intellectual Property in Medicine; Trade Remedies in WTO Law; Trade Mark Law in a Branded World; European Copyright Law; Economic Multi-level Governance in the EU.
