LLM in Corporate Law

Format: Campus

Program Description:

This innovative programme aims to transcend a narrow focus on legal rules and put the study of corporate law in a wider interdisciplinary and comparative framework. The portfolio of courses offered on the programme allows you to acquire in-depth knowledge of legal, economic, financial and comparative matters covering the entire life-cycle of a corporation.
The LLM in Corporate Law will equip you with:
- a critical understanding of the main legal, economic and financial matters pertaining to the entire life-cycle of a corporation from an international and interdisciplinary perspective
- a sound understanding of fundamental concepts of finance and economics which are necessary for an integrated understanding of the context in which corporate law and regulation operate
- the ability to work with international legal materials and to grasp the legal implications of transactions involving international institutions and corporations.

Students in the LLM in Corporate Law are encouraged to enter the annual Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot, a very prestigious international moot court competition for law students. It is designed to foster the study of international commercial law and arbitration for the resolution of international business disputes by arbitration.

The programme can be taken full-time over 12 months, or part-time over 24 months (due to current UKBA regulations, part-time study is only available for UK or EU citizens).


The University of Edinburgh and the Edinburgh Law School is an Internationally recognised Higher Education institution accredited to provide advanced education. It should be noted that a postgraduate masters degree in Law from the University of Edinburgh does not qualify for entry into the Scottish (or other country's) Legal Practice. Advice from your local Bar Association or Law Society should be sought if you wish to pursue legal practice in your country of domicile.
