LLM Masters of Laws: Insurance Law

Overview

Insurance is a key part of commercial law and practice but it is only researched and taught at a few universities. This pathway will allow you to construct a programme that will equip you with the knowledge, skills and practical tools needed to gain a thorough understanding of insurance law, practice and regulation.

The programme is designed for those with a special interest in the wide field of insurance law. While the precise modules available may vary from year to year, typical examples modules for the pathway might include general principles of insurance, consumer insurance, marine insurance, reinsurance, EU motor insurance and financial regulations.

Delivered by some of the world-leading experts in the broad field of international law, it will draw on their professional experience, readying you to fulfil your career ambitions or for doctoral study.

Students wishing to obtain a specialised LLM must complete three 30-credit modules in your chosen specialism, and must write a dissertation worth 60 credits in that subject area.

Modules in this specialism are regularly updated to remain topical and may include:
