Law is not a subject you can take or leave. Students come to our friendly Brunel Law School with a passion. They leave with their passion focused into a degree that is recognised and valued around the world.
The LLB Law with International Arbitration and Commercial Law concentrates on the realities of modern commercial law and the importance of understanding its substance, as well as the most important method for the resolution of contemporary business disputes. Developed in collaboration with an advisory board of internationally-recognised specialists, this LLB introduces students to specialised areas of knowledge while ensuring that they receive the broad legal education offered on a standard LLB course.
Brunel Law School offers two routes to studying the LLB Law with a specialisation in International Arbitration and Commercial Law:
•The LLB Law with International Arbitration and Commercial Law (three years full-time).
•The LLB Law with International Arbitration and Commercial Law (Professional Placement) (four years) - this includes a one year industry placement. Previous placements at Brunel have been in solicitors' firms, barristers' chambers, governmental institutions and related organisations.
Law has an impact on every aspect of society. Consumers' rights, international and cyber commerce, taxation, housing, family protection and human rights are all firmly rooted in international and domestic law. The study of law offers exciting specialisations that range from more established subjects such as taxation or human rights to emerging fields like internet commerce. Brunel Law School is recognised by the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, the primary professional body within arbitration, as a course provider for our Arbitration and Commercial Law LLB. This means that when you graduate from the course you'll be eligible to become a member of the institute. Unlike other graduates, you will not be required to complete further courses to qualify, saving you up to £3,000 in additional course fees.
We have excellent links with criminal law practitioners, experienced solicitors and barristers and you'll benefit from our relationships with dynamic law firms and the Inns of Court. If you undertake a placement, we can support you in finding the place that is right for you. Brunel pioneered industrial placements for law in the UK and our high-quality placements continue to provide valuable contacts for securing traineeships.
