For the past 40 years, Queen Mary University of London’s Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS) has developed in-depth expertise in a range of areas of commercial law, which underpins our very successful postgraduate law teaching. More than 20 specialist programmes are offered to approximately 700 LLM and MSc students per year in London.
The Paris LLM specialisms are based on the same principles as in London, but operate in a smaller, more executive setting. Courses are taught in English by Queen Mary University of London faculty, in collaboration with distinguished guest lecturers. The programme and its student community are supported by alumni and several local partnerships.
The Paris LLM programme offers students a wide choice in International Business Law and in the specialist areas of: International Dispute Resolution; Intellectual Property; Banking & Finance; Technology, Media and Telecommunications Law; and Energy & Natural Resources. Specialised courses are complemented by more general topics such as English Contract Law, Negotiation Theory and Practice, and Competition Law.
The Queen Mary LLM programme offers a unique opportunity for the study of commercial and private international law with a global perspective. The instructors are academics and practitioners, and the students come from a variety of countries. The course offerings provide insight and understanding of both common law and civil law regimes, and the programme provides a direct path to a transnational practice.

We have given guest lectures at the Queen Mary Paris LLM programme and have been genuinely impressed by the students: they are bright, talented and come from a variety of interesting backgrounds and jurisdictions, some with significant work experience. We would certainly recommend that anybody serious about pursuing an international career considers this programme.
