Online modules on Global Corporate Law

Corporate, commercial and finance training for global practitioners

Keeping up-to-speed with developments in international corporate law is vital to help corporate lawyers stay ahead of the competition and provide clients with cutting edge advice.

That’s why The University of Law offer a range of flexible corporate law courses for international practitioners and English/Welsh lawyers practising overseas. 

In association with the International Bar Association, we offer standalone modules that focus on specialist areas of international corporate practice and each module accounts for 75% of annual UK CPD.

In conjunction with the International Bar Association, we offer a range of standalone online study modules covering specialist areas of international corporate practice. 

Our practice-focused modules are studied over six months and are aimed at graduates and global lawyers of all levels with an interest in global legal practice – based in the UK or elsewhere.

These online study modules form part of our LL.M in International Legal Practice, but can also be studied as standalone courses for UK CPD. Modules start in January and July each year and blend flexible online study with one-to-one supervision from a University tutor (known as i-LLM).

Each six-month i-LLM module focuses on a different aspect of international corporate law and consists of nine units. Each unit equates to 10 to 15 hours of study and includes mandatory submissions and an end of unit assessment. The final unit of each module is a 3,000 to 5,000-word assessment.

More information on the ten i-LLM modules available

Although each module can be taken on a standalone basis, successful completion of six i-LLM modules plus a dissertation, in five years, can lead to the award of an LLM in International Legal Practice.
