International Corporate Governance and Commercial Law
This course takes a comparative and international approach to the key areas of corporate governance and corporate and commercial law. The contextual approach taken in this LLM enables an understanding of why different countries adopt different laws and governance approaches and how they respond to economic and social pressures. It assesses these approaches in times of economic stability and in crisis, with particular reference to the current crisis. The course particularly focuses on corporate governance and on commercial transactions.
Applicants will normally be expected to have obtained an undergraduate Law degree with honours (2.1 or higher, or its equivalent).
Module includes: International corporate governance and company law; law and commercial transactions; introduction to comparative law; research skills and methods; dissertation. Optional modules: Corporate social responsibility; mergers and acquisitions; european competitive law; financial crime; international business negotiations; financial citizenship and social justice.
A range of scholarships and studentships are available at postgraduate level. Some scholarships are funded by the University (such as the York Master's Opportunity Scholarship) and some are funded by Research Councils, alumni, businesses and charities.
