The Labour Law and Corporate Governance LLM offers a range of units for students planning to specialise in employment and company law matters. It examines labour law and corporate governance from a framework of an economic and socio-political perspective. The programme covers the international legal framework, trade, employment and human rights, taking both a practical and a theoretical view. This LLM opens doors to a wide variety of future careers in law, finance and global governance.
Our Centre of Law and Enterprise highlights our breadth of critical scholarship, teaching and public engagement in business enterprise and our dedication to progressive and innovative thinking.
We offer an exciting and stimulating set of postgraduate law programmes, each of which prepares you for a variety of careers. If you are interested in studying law beyond your undergraduate degree level and want to develop your analytical, research and legal writing skills, you will find Bristol’s LLM to be a challenging and rewarding experience. We have a large and vibrant international community and our LLM students benefit from small class sizes taught by world-renowned experts.
Our LLM programmes give you the opportunity to specialise in a particular area but you can also opt for a broader and more general set of unit choices. In all cases, you are encouraged to explore your chosen areas of law at a deeper level. You will have the chance to see how these legal fields operate in different contexts, considering the relevant issues theoretically and practically and from a range of perspectives.
