In the new era of digital revolution and sustainable finance in the global economy the role of corporate law has radically changed both in terms of the purpose of the corporation and duties of corporate officers. Comparative corporate law expertise in context is increasingly in demand in legal practice and across established and new industrial sectors, finance, multinational corporations, SMEs, and start-up.

On this course you will learn about business transactions and corporate law at national and international levels and will explore pressing contemporary problems in this context. Our teaching approach is international in scope and comparative by nature. You will develop the skills and knowledge required to pursue a global career as highly-skilled corporate professional in the new stakeholder economy.

This course combines insights and readings from both Law and business and offers the chance to discuss case studies to develop experience from real life legal practice. You will be taught by internationally recognised experts with experience of advising international businesses, legal practice, and local governments.

In addition to corporate related modules (e.g., Comparative Corporate Law and Insolvency, Corporate Governance), you will have a wide choice of elective modules offering you access to expertise in relevant and growing fields including:

  • International Investment Law
  • Legal Framework for International Project Finance
  • Private International Law of Business Transactions
  • Competition Law
  • International Taxation Law
  • Intellectual Property Law

Students on the LLM Corporate and Commercial Law may also take modules from the wide range of specialist courses at University of Dundee’s Centre for Energy, Petroleum and Mineral Law & Policy (CEPMLP) and School of Business, offering opportunities to an interdisciplinary learning experience and expand and develop a coherent body of knowledge and expertise in the wider field of corporate law and business in context.

“New technologies are enabling the emergence of... new types of organizations and innovative business models... Employer-employee relationships are changing. We think differently about status and ownership. Companies are witnessing the transformation from products to services... Three skills are relevant for the digital transformation: complex problem-solving, incentive-based thinking, storytelling and persuasion...”
