The City Law School has boosted the number of places available on its international commercial law masters degree.
The school has created an additional 20 places on its LLM after applications have continued to flood in. The final date for applications has now been extended to 17 September.
LLM programme director Professor Alan Riley said: Weve found that a lot of really good students only decide to apply in July and August, partly because of the late delivery of exam results. By this time they find that most LLM courses have already closed their lists for the year.
He added: Our additional 20 places and late application deadline mean that students looking for a high-quality and innovative LLM can still pursue their studies.
In a related move the City Law School has appointed Anthony Rogers from Cardiff University as a senior lecturer in shipping law to the course.
The schools international commercial law LLM programme is supplemented by a slew of internships with a number of leading firms, including Sidley Austin, Howrey and OMelveny & Myers. The school is currently in talks with several firms to bolster the number of internships from seven to 11.
