Online distance learning postgraduate program descriptions:LL.M in International Commercial Law and Practice
The LLM in International Commercial Law and Practice will enable you to develop a practical understanding of the legal issues surrounding specific industries, markets and commercial relationships. It will also facilitate a broader and more generic understanding of underlying themes, such as harmonisation, regulation and compliance.
It will be of benefit to lawyers in practice dealing with international issues, and also to in-house lawyers and other professionals working in international commerce who are confronted by international legal issues and who wish to deepen their legal knowledge.
LL.M in Law
Our new LLM in Law by online distance learning provides an ideal learning environment for you to develop the skills and knowledge that could lead to further study or a relevant career in law. The programme fosters independence of thought, critical reflection and scholarly writing skills. It offers breadth and flexibility – you choose modules that best reflect your personal and professional interests, without necessarily specialising in one area of law.
LL.M Medical Law and Ethics
The programme takes students from the fundamental constitutive elements on medical law, being consent, confidentiality, negligence and human rights, through ethically and legally sensitive issues of abortion, fertility treatment, futile treatment and euthanasia, and onto to contemporary issues surrounding genetic testing, genomic medicine, access to new treatments, and resource allocation, and finally to international dimensions of the provision of health care and the control of threats to human health and safety from public health emergencies such as HIV/AIDS, SARS and avian flu.
LL.M Innovation, Technology & the Law
The programme aims to promote a high level of knowledge and understanding of the relationship between law, technology, commerce and society in the widest possible sense. It explores the role of the law in responding to, regulating and promoting new and emerging technologies, and also emphasises the role of technology in supporting and guiding legal and judicial processes. The programme covers intellectual property law, information technology law and medical law.
LL.M Intellectual Property Law
The programme aims to promote advanced knowledge and understanding of intellectual property law within international, European and domestic settings. The course covers comparative study of the laws of patents, copyright, trade marks, designs, database protection, breach of confidence, passing off and related sui generis rights, as well as investigating a range of issues which underpin contemporary intellectual property law.
LL.M Information Technology Law
The programme encompasses regulatory approaches to information technology, jurisdiction, content liability, privacy and data protection, intellectual property, standards and competition, cybercrime, e-commerce, the digital divide, legal challenges in respect of new information and communications technologies (including the internet and virtual worlds), and using these technologies in investigation and dispute adjudication.
