Course detail

The online International Corporate & Commercial Law master’s in law is thematically structured around the life cycle of a corporate body, providing you with an in-depth understanding of today’s highly complex and dynamic global corporate and its commercial worlds. The programme will have great practical relevance; it will equip students with problem-solving skills, an ability to deal with legal problems and questions against the backdrop of economic realities and a good business sense. The programme will:

  • Examine the issues of international corporate law, including regulation of mergers and acquisitions, corporate form and its issues, corporate actors and international corporate finance.
  • Focus on key transactions and legal arrangements entered into by a corporate body, including trade, shipping, finance, energy, and investment related transactions.
  • Include a stage when ‘things go wrong’, with the focus being on dispute resolution and on corporate insolvency. Includes courses on international commercial arbitration and international corporate insolvency.
  • Provide overarching legal foundation and themes to corporate and commercial areas of the law as well as reinforce a global and transnational vision underpinning the programme.

It is based on the most advanced legal thinking emanating from the experience of major legal systems and international and transnational law regimes. You will benefit from The Dickson Poon School of Law’s pioneering transnational legal perspective in legal research and teaching.

My work life is extremely busy. I travel a lot and also need to spend time at home with my family. I knew I had to juggle these and somehow fit the course in between other commitments. Whether you’re at home or work, you can get access to the course anytime. This course is designed in a way that fits my work and personal life, which is why I chose it.
