Dundee announces joint LLM in International Commercial Law with the University of Cergy Pontoise
The University of Dundee School of Law has announced the creation of a new joint Masters programme with the Law Faculty at the University of Cergy-Pontoise (UCP) in France.
The Joint Masters, which will commence in September 2008, brings together two dynamic and highly rated law schools. Students will be taught through English by acknowledged experts and will gain an in-depth knowledge of a wide range of contemporary commercial law subjects from both a common law and civil law perspective. Students enrolled on the dual-qualifying LLM will graduate with a LLM in International Commercial Law from Dundee University and an LLM in Business and Taxation Law or Law and Business Ethics from UCP.
The autumn semester will be spent in Scotland where, after a week-long induction session, students will select two modules from the International Commercial Law programme:
• International Business Transactions
• Company Law
• Principles of E-Commerce
• Problems in International Commercial Litigation
• Principles of International Contract Law
• Consumer Transactions.
For the spring semester, students will go to Cergy-Pontoise, 30 minutes from the centre of Paris, and enrol in either the Business and Taxation Law Master or the Master in Law and Business Ethics. Students must complete four modules, taught through English, including options in:
• Antitrust and Competition Law
• Business Law: Corporate, Finance, Distribution and Litigation
• Real Estate and Property Investments
• Corporate Governance
• Intellectual Property.
On completion of the second semester in May, students will return to Dundee for the summer semester to complete a 15,000-word dissertation on a comparative commercial law topic.
