Law (Part-Time)

Coventry University
On campus
2 Years

Program Description

We live in a society governed by a complex legal framework but how much do we really understand the rights we have and the obligations we must abide by?

Our LLM in Law course will provide you with an opportunity to explore this area and develop your knowledge around Law, particularly in areas affected by international and comparative law. You will be introduced to the relevant rules, values and institutions of comparative and international law, which then feed into, and aim to challenge your learning, through study topics including public international law, international human rights, commercial law, and corporate social responsibility.

In the past, students have chosen topics as diverse as corporate governance and the failure of banks, whether companies should be criminally accountable for the acts and omissions of employees, the death penalty and international human rights and an analysis of the implementation of the trade-related intellectual property (IP) rights agreement in less developed countries.
