The University's Ealing Law School has launched three new LLM courses for this autumn.
The LLM in International Investment and Arbitration Law, LLM in International Studies in Intellectual Property Law and the LLM in Employment Law are one-year masters degree courses open to both UK and internationally trained lawyers.
The LLM in International Investment and Arbitration Law covers substantive rules and principles of treatment of foreign investors by governments and the various forms of dispute resolution available for investment and commercial disputes.
The LLM in International Studies in Intellectual Property Law covers copyright, trade mark and patent law with its European and international aspects, including legal questions associated with new technologies, multimedia and the Internet.
The LLM in Employment Law has been designed to encourage students to explore and critically appraise the legal, philosophical and practical issues in the area of employment law and relations.
Commenting on the launch of these three programmes, Professor Malcolm Davies, Head of Ealing Law School, said:
'We’re excited to announce the launch of these three LLM programmes. Our particular strength is that in addition to traditional lectures and seminars, LLM students are exposed to a host of guest speakers including international practitioners encouraging awareness about how law operates in the real world. We look forward to welcoming new students from around the world to these courses.'
The Guardian's University League Table 2013 rated the University of West London as the best modern university in London.
