Please note that effective September 2022 the program will be offered with a revised curriculum under the title Master of Laws in Global Business Law and Regulation.
LL.M. in Global Business Law and Regulation
The LL.M. in Global Business Law and Regulation offers advanced legal education in the field of global business law. As a professional program, it targets young legal professionals and caters to their needs for a practice-oriented legal education. It offers participants the opportunity to specialize in one of four areas: (1) international dispute resolution, (2) international economic and commercial Law, (3) corporate law, and (4) regulation and corporate social responsibility.
LL.M. in International Business Law
Please note that no new students are presently being enrolled into the Hungarian-registered version of the program.
The focus of the LL.M. in International Business Law program is on the legal setting of business transactions in a transnational environment, on the players, and on the regulatory framework of international business. To address increasingly interdisciplinary and cross-border legal challenges, the curriculum of the Program rests on several building blocks, such as dispute resolution (e.g., international commercial arbitration, conflict of laws), international business law (e.g., GATT & WTO, EU law, drafting and negotiating contracts in the transnational context), regulation of business (e.g., capital market and securities regulation, antitrust/competition and consumer protection law) and comparative business law (e.g., comparative national company, bankruptcy, and secured transaction laws). Additionally, the program constantly strives to offer courses that deal with contemporary global, regional and local challenges. Most courses are based on interactive teaching methods and are of a comparative nature, typically juxtaposing the laws of leading common law and civil law legal systems with those of emerging markets. The Program is highly attractive to applicants holding a law degree, who wish to continue an international career not only in legal practice (law firms, in-house counsels) but also in academia, the governmental sector, and increasingly diverse areas of finance (e.g., financial regulatory agencies, investment companies, banks). The alumni of the IBL Program are now not only found working in international and local law firms or as in-house counsels of international corporations, but are university teachers, governmental officials, experts of regulatory bodies, or even professionals in the non-profit sector.
