The Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS) and the School of Economics and Finance at Queen Mary have joined forces to create a new specialist Master of Laws programme, the LLM in Law and Economics.
The LLM in Law and Economics aims to provide rigorous training in theoretical and applied economic analysis as a means of analysing law and the legal framework. Such interdisciplinary skills make this LLM ideal for those already in, or planning a career in law or economics in academia, the public sector, international institutions, financial or legal industry or management consulting.
Dr Rodrigo Olivares-Caminal, Course Director for the LLM in Law and Economics, commented, "This very challenging new programme will provide students with the theoretical tools to master two different albeit related disciplines ."
Students who apply for the new LLM in Law and Economics are also able to apply for the bursaries that have been specifically created for this course. Queen Mary, University of London is offering two bursaries of £7,500 and £5,000 each, for outstanding full-time candidates.
