The programme is led by Professor Iain MacNeil, who will be pleased to respond to any enquiries: email@example.com.
New… Conflict Aspects of Commercial Law LLM
No lawyer practising today can afford to be ignorant of the rules of civil and commercial jurisdiction and judgment enforcement. This course, to be introduced in 2009–10 as an important addition to the courses offered in the LLM in International Commercial Law, will allow students to study current developments in UK and European law concerning allocation of jurisdiction, problems of conflicting jurisdiction, judgment enforcement and related topics, and choice of law in the important commercial areas of contract, delict/tort, property and insolvency. The course will equip students to advise not only on where a right can be pursued, but also where and how it can be enforced. These topics form part of a rapidly moving area of law with great commercial importance. Controversies abound; do not miss the opportunity to get up to speed on the talked-about cases of Gasser, Owusu, and Turner.
