Description

Our LLMs from our new Master’s in Law suite of programmes are designed for law and non-law graduates who want to explore the practical application of a particular, specialist area of the law. Study face to face or online.

This course has been developed to explore in detail the types of rules, policies and controls put in place to determine the behaviour of a corporation, and the intended outcome of those measures. It covers areas such as models of corporate governance, classification of systems and the impact of the global financial crisis. It will also cover the role of the company secretary, the board of directors, the relationship between the board and its shareholders, disclosure and accountability. Taking a practical look at how to identify, set and uphold a corporate governance means that you will be able to enrich your understanding and skillset in this area, with the support of experienced practitioners who can demonstrate real-life examples to contextualise what you learn.

This course is delivered entirely online. The full-time options are divided into three terms over one calendar year, while the part-time options are divided over six terms in two calendar years. There is an online induction at the beginning of each course.

Each taught module is delivered over ten teaching weeks, with two hour workshops each week. All preparatory material, including any lecture content, is provided on the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), as is all consolidation material.

The dissertation is undertaken in either Term 3 (full-time) or Terms 5 and 6 (part-time). All taught modules must have been completed before you begin the dissertation.

When you study a Master’s online with us you will:

  • Be taught by subject matter experts, former and current practitioners and research and teaching focused academics
  • Focus on legal practice, not just theory
  • Benefit from strategic partnerships with firms, regulators and accreditation bodies
  • Learn about Legal Technology by selecting to study modules in legal technology
  • Improve your employability by gaining important transferable skills and mapping your career with our careers team

The award-linked module for this programme (Corporate Governance in Practice) will also cover the role of the company secretary, the board of directors, the relationship between the board and its shareholders, disclosure and accountability to give you an all-encompassing insight into the mechanics of corporate operation. The aim of this module is to put corporate governance in context, enabling you to learn how to apply complex theoretical concepts to real world client situations.

In addition to a general induction to the programme, there is a two-week induction covering the Key Principles of the English Legal System. This is compulsory for non-law students, but also open to law students wanting a refresher in the fundamentals of the law of England and Wales. This would be useful for any student who has taken a considerable break from legal education.
