Summary

This course has been developed to explore in detail the types of rules, policies and controls put in place to determine the behaviour of an international corporation, and the intended outcome of those measures. It covers areas such as the different models of corporate governance, convergence and path dependence theories, harmonisation of corporate governance codes and the future of global corporate governance. It will also cover the role of the company secretary, the board of directors, the relationship between the board and its shareholders, disclosure and accountability. Taking a practical look at how to identify, set and uphold an international corporate governance means that you will be able to enrich your understanding and skillset in this area, with the support of experienced practitioners who can demonstrate real-life examples to contextualise what you learn.

When you study the LLM International Corporate Governance with us you will:

  • Broaden your career horizons with a valuable Master’s qualification in the specialist fields of your choosing

  • Learn professional skills to make you stand out to potential employers

  • Gain an up-to-date knowledge of law and practice in your chosen area and the impact of those developments on commercial and legal practice

  • Receive one-to-one tutor support and feedback on your work from a fully-qualified lawyer

  • Develop a portfolio demonstrating the law in practice

The award-linked module for this programme (International Corporate Governance) will aim to put international corporate governance in context, enabling you to learn how to apply complex theoretical concepts to real world client situations and give you an all-encompassing insight into the mechanics of international corporate operation.

In addition to the International Corporate Governance module, you’ll have the chance to select three other elective modules that interest you, as well as complete a dissertation that allows you to explore an area linked to International Corporate Governance through independent research.

In addition to a general induction to the programme, there is a two-week induction covering the Key Principles of the English Legal System. This is compulsory for non-law students, but also open to law students wanting a refresher in the fundamentals of the law of England and Wales. This would be useful for any student who has taken a considerable break from legal education.

To help prepare you for your dissertation you’ll study a range of compulsory and further optional Research Methods Training sessions in your first terms.

Please note that, due to Home Office regulations, students who require a Tier 4 visa to study with us are not permitted to study online and can only choose face-to-face taught modules.
