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 tell us that's what they look for in a graduate. Many of our graduates become legal practitioners. But you can use your postgraduate training in different ways, including teaching, business or policy development. You could pursue a career in research and there is a lot of specialist staff here who can support you in this.
