|Department||School of Law|
Are you interested in rules, treaties and legislation and the world of business transactions? Do you love negotiating, understanding contracts and how they are interpreted? International Commercial Law with Professional Skills at Aberdeen offers a comprehensive range of courses that carefully combine both the academic theory and the professional skills you need to operate successfully in the field of International Commercial Law. This programme presents you with an opportunity to mould your study within the complex area of International Commercial Law. It offers a comprehensive range of courses that combine theory and practical professional skills in the field of international and commercial law, drawing from the expertise of staff. The courses reflect contemporary and developing issues and blend theory and practice in their approach.
The last 50 years has seen high growth in international commerce. Trade, in particular, has always been the engine room of legal development. Today, thanks to the internet, international commercial transactions are so common that people barely realise they are conducting them and at the other end of the scale multinational companies conduct million, even billion, pound transactions. Companies large and small rely on international commercial law to provide protection and means of trading successfully.
In contrast to the LLM International Commercial Law with Dissertation, the LLM International Commercial Law with Professional Skills offers students the opportunity to develop key practical skills in arbitration rather than research skills through the writing and submission of a thesis. Students on this programme undertake an intensive summer school programme, followed by a simulated practical exercise and submission of an extended piece of writing.

Normally a 2:1 honours degree in Law (or another related discipline) or equivalent. Relevant practical experience in the field of commercial law will also be beneficial.
Courses are assessed through essays, presentations, role play, group work and project work. The variety of assessments in the programme ensures that students apply theory to practical situations in order to become expert at being able to analyse and reason issues thoroughly.
The Professional Skills module is assessed through a combination of attendance and participation in classes, preparatory work, a simulated practical exercise and submission of a final piece of extended writing.
Using experiential teaching techniques, the University Law School aims to sharpen your practical and professional skills that will enable you to demonstrate your value to potential employers. Teaching is organised on a modular basis with the professional skills module delivered through an intensive summer school.
