Online LL.M - Master of Laws in International Business Law

The Online Master of Laws (LL.M) in International Business Law is the prime management qualification for lawyers and managers wishing to strengthen their legal knowledge; research indicates that the LL.M is a catalyst for individuals with strong career aspirations. The University of Cumbria now offers students the opportunity to complete an LL.M by blended learning, enabling them to study while continuing to work.

The LL.M qualification continues to be the gold standard for career development not only within the Legal sector, including those practising law in commercial and business fields, but also in the Business and Management field. It is often a vehicle for gaining promotion to middle and senior management, by demonstrating a broader capability and knowledge than in business alone. As global business law development continues to grow and evolve, this programme offers the opportunity to those who want to develop their careers to gain the qualification in just one year.
