Summary

This new LLM is the only programme of its kind to teach core legal courses from a distinctly transnational perspective. With the globalisation of law at its centre, it prepares graduates for a career in a fast-changing global context, teaching competence to analyse complex legal problems through solid legal doctrine, training in transnational legal cultures, lawyerly practice, legal theory, and law’s global socio-economics.

**Key benefits**
- Taught by world leaders in their fields with a strong emphasis on rigorous analysis combined with ‘thinking outside the box’.

- A foundational core module on ‘Transnational Law and Global Governance’ and a ‘Transnational Law Colloquium’ featuring intensive interaction with experts from legal London and global practice and academia.

- Covering key areas in public law from a transnational law perspective, including human rights, development, refugee law, criminal law, policing & security and the interplay between domestic and international organizations.

- Covering key areas in transnational private law, including corporate governance, corporate restructuring, commercial arbitration, labour law, business & human rights, and family law.

- Modules will investigate through an inter-disciplinary lens the co-existence of different normative orders and discuss issues of jurisdiction, legal pluralism, indigenous law and the tension between ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ law with a view to addressing urgent transnational legal problems of poverty, climate change, financial governance and post-conflict justice.
