Summary

What responsibilities do businesses owe to society? How do national law and international law interact and what is their role in Corporate Responsibility? How do companies ensure they operate ethically? How well do organisations understand and address the urgency of sustainable development? Corporate Responsibility is a key global concern and these are all questions of necessity for businesses all over the world.

Corporate Responsibility and Corporate Social Responsibility are concepts which businesses – no matter their size or purpose – must value and adhere to. Our course gives you the tools to identify, analyse and evaluate the main legal rules, principles, models and dimensions of Corporate Responsibility and issues relating to ethical business, corporate and business law, corporate governance, sustainability and human rights.

You’ll study topics including but not limited to:

Legal Aspects of Corporate Social Responsibility
Environmental law and policy
Human rights within business
Ethically oriented-practices such as consumer protection and labour standards
Responsibility in global value chains and institutionally challenging environments
Not only will you understand Corporate Responsibility, you’ll be able to develop suitable responses and create action plans to tackle complex issues around this. Graduates will be suited to a broad range of corporate, legal, business and environmental protection roles across national and transnational non-profit and public organisations.

Our School of Law has an international reputation for teaching law that matters. We specialise in commercial law, public law and human rights law and our research is valued across the globe. Many of our academics also hold positions advising and working with the UN, the UK government and with EU and foreign governments.
