BRUNEL UNIVERSITY LONDON

Law with International Arbitration and Commercial Law

LLB (Hons)  |  Placement Year:   Yes

The LLB Law with International Arbitration and Commercial Law concentrates on the realities of modern commercial law and the importance of understanding its substance, as well as the most important method for the resolution of contemporary business disputes.

Developed in collaboration with an advisory board of internationally-recognised specialists, this LLB introduces students to specialised areas of knowledge while ensuring that they receive the broad legal education offered on a standard LLB course.

Over the course of study you will specialise in arbitration and areas of commercial law of your choice. This will result in a degree that is both focused on your specific interests and that uniquely prepares you for one of the few genuinely cross-border fields of legal practice.

Brunel Law School offers two routes to studying the LLB Law with a specialisation in International Arbitration and Commercial Law:

  • The LLB Law with International Arbitration and Commercial Law (three years full-time).
  • The LLB Law with International Arbitration and Commercial Law (Professional Placement) (four years) - this includes a one year industry placement. Previous placements at Brunel have been in solicitors' firms, barristers' chambers, governmental institutions and related organisations.

The LLB Law with International Arbitration and Commercial Law fulfils all the requirements of the traditional LLB, giving graduates qualifying law degree status that satisfies the requirements of the Law Society and the Bar Council.

Graduates gain the advantage of recognised specialised knowledge in the area of international arbitration and commercial law, and leave with a thorough knowledge and understanding of commercial law, cross-border transactions, international and comparative law, and cross-cultural dispute resolution.
