As the world of corporate law ramps up, there’s never been a better time to upskill.
Do you have a degree in law or another relevant subject? The LLM courses at the University of Bolton are available to graduates from both legal and non-legal backgrounds looking to develop their skills in specialist areas such as corporate law and international business law.
If you’ve been thinking of pursuing this lucrative and highly respected career path, our postgraduate law courses could be for you.
According to reports, this year has seen a frenzied ramp-up of corporate deal-making across the globe, increasing the need for lawyers with knowledge in handling cross-border transactions.
2021 has had the strongest opening months of mergers and acquisitions since records began, with private equity deals having more than doubled, and the number of deals having seen a 65% increase.
While deal-making took a nose dive in the first half of 2020 as corporate acquirers backed away when the pandemic hit, there has been significant bounce-back across all regions in the global market. The US has had a 139% year-on-year increase, while Europe and Asia-Pacific surged by 69% and 53% respectively.
Despite the minor setback of 2020, it’s evident that globalisation is in full swing. With greater interconnectedness among markets around the world, there will be plenty of opportunities to trade and invest.
International business law experts are in demand, and globalisation is reshaping the legal services market in a substantial way. If you’ve been thinking about upskilling in this field, now could be the perfect time to apply for postgraduate training.
Whether from a business or legal background, LLM students will be able to develop in-depth knowledge about the legal needs of a business, providing guidance to organisations with international reach.
The University of Bolton’s LLM law courses are open to law graduates, business graduates, legal professionals, and people working in commercial fields nationally and internationally.
As a leading Greater Manchester university that’s been in the Top 10 in the UK (and No.1 in the North West) for Student Satisfaction in Law Courses* for the second year running, there’s nowhere better to study in this subject.
The School of Law at Bolton University offers a number of LLM degrees, whatever stage you’re at in your career. It’s our goal to help you succeed as a law practitioner, and our ‘Teaching Intensive, Research Informed’ approach means you’ll learn from the best.
Enrolling with us means joining our prestigious University of Bolton Student Law Society, which puts you at the heart of a vibrant student community. Our tutors will spend time getting to know you, and your career ambitions, and will align the course to your needs.
