Third Cohort Starts Dual LLM Programme

14 September 2016 saw the start of the third cohort of the Dual LLM programme at the Grotius Building, home of the Nijmegen Law School on the campus of Radboud University.

Wednesday 14 September 2016 saw the start of the third cohort of the Dual LLM programme at the Grotius Building, home of the Nijmegen Law School on the campus of Radboud University. Two members of the Centre for Business and Insolvency Law at Nottingham Law School, Professor Paul Omar and Mrs Jenny Gant, went to Nijmegen to start the teaching on this programme. This programme, which sees students graduate with an award from both institutions, an LLM in European Law and Insolvency Law from RUN and an LLM in Corporate and Insolvency Law from NTU, is the fruit of a collaboration between both Law Schools that began in September 2012.

The programme is academically rigorous, but designed to ensure that students are able to complete the requirements for both degrees in the space of a single year. To achieve a successful result, students begin their studies in Nijmegen in the autumn term studying a suite of subjects, including European Corporate Law as well as Finance and Security. They then come to Nottingham in the spring term to attend insolvency-themed courses, hosted in the Centre for Business Law and Insolvency. In the summer term, students then complete a long dissertation jointly supervised by staff at both institutions containing a strong comparative law element. Alongside their substantive courses, students are also required to complete two full-year modules, largely supported by on-line materials, which focus on Research Methodology and Comparative Law as well as Workout Strategies, both of which were presented during the teaching sessions in Nijmegen on 14 September – 16 September 2016.

Both Law Schools hope that the third cohort on this programme will emulate the success of their predecessors and that it will continue to be a sign of the close cooperation between both institutions.
