The renowned part-time distance learning LLM from Lloyd’s Maritime Academy and the World Maritime University develops leading knowledge and awareness of international trade and maritime law, increasing understanding of how commercial trade ventures may give rise to legal issues. With English law recognised internationally as a dominant legal system providing the basis for maritime and trade contracts, and with London as the single most important forum for settling disputes, both through court litigation and arbitration, this course approaches law in relation to how it is applied in practice. The course finishes with a research based module and a dissertation, allowing you to consolidate and apply all the theory you have learnt throughout the course.
