Raising the global bar
Governance is a key area for lawyers in large and small firms, as well as for many public companies, government departments, large charities and non-government organisations. Internationally, there is a strong need for technical knowledge and understanding of legal governance lawyers who are not used to working in a common law legal system versus their own civil code or mixed system.
This degree enables lawyers to enhance their knowledge and skills on both private and public law issues of corporate governance, with a strong theoretical core, and a series of elective units to provide specialist information and skills. The degree also provides an invaluable opportunity for those without experience in a legal environment to be supervised and mentored by experienced legal practitioners through a legal placement unit. There is no tuition fee for this subject and it may be undertaken at the same time as the academic subjects.
