Hi all!

Has anyone taken up these LLM modules at UCL?

1)Principles of Civil Justice
2) Alternative Dispute Resolution
3) Commercial Remedies
4) International and Commercial Trusts Law
5) Restitution of Unjust Enrichment
6) International and Comparative Secured Transactions

I'm definitely taking 1 and considering 2 to complement it. 3-5 sound like a perfect combination especially since I want to focus on commercial law when I'm done with my LLM. 6 is in the mix because it has an insolvency aspect to it.

Overall, would just like to know what the course load has been like for these modules and whether anyone has found the modules/tutors to be interesting/disappointing etc.

Thanks in advance!

Hi, are you planning to take up the specialist path for LLM International Commercial Law?

I am currently holding an offer for UCL LLM too and am torn between LLM International Commercial Law and the LLM for Litigation and Dispute Resolution.

However, I'm certain that I will take the ADR module because I think (need to double-check) that it's a coursework only module. This balances out with the other modules which I want to take.

Hi SL1996,

I'm leaning towards the International Commercial Law specialism but would be equally happy with the Litigation and Dispute Resolution specialism.

My dissertation has been thrown off just a little as UCL isn't currently offering the International Insolvency Law module for 2017-2018 and that was going to be the main area of focus of my dissertation. So I'm sort of back to square one in terms of which specialism to pursue.

I haven't even thought about the dissertation yet hahah
Originally I wanted to study Litigation and Dispute Resolution and had a idea in place. But on second thoughts it's a rather hard question which I was attempting to do, not sure whether that's a wise choice.

Another factor is that I'm more swayed to follow International Commercial Law, in which case, my original dissertation topic isn't suitable anyway.

If I'm correct, we have to finalise our modules + specialist pathways by July don't we? I haven't been through any of the information received yet, will plan to do all that in June after my exams.

I think we have til the end of our first week to finalise our modules. Dissertation topic can be developed over the course of the first term. Still got plenty of time

I did International and Commercial Trusts this year and would recommend it. You do come across some difficult concepts, but McFarlane is REALLY good at explaining them. However, if any of you haven't accepted your offers yet, I'd reconsider going to UCL. The LLM there is far worse overall than the university's reputation would lead you to believe...
