Many large corporate and commercial transactions take place in Johannesburg, South Africa’s economic hub. The UJ Law Faculty is thus well placed to offer a highly relevant LLM in Commercial Law, drawing students from leading commercial firms. The team of lecturers involved combine intellectual leadership and cutting edge practical insight which is reflected in their teaching.
Classes or seminars in the taught modules are presented in the evenings on weekdays.
The minimum entry requirement is an LLB degree (or equivalent qualification) at NQF Level 7 or 8 and a minimum number of credits of 624. Candidates for admission to Master’s degrees in general need to have obtained their previous degree with an average mark of at least 65%.
Students may be selected for entry to the qualification. This selection will be based on one or more objectively justifiable and appropriate criteria. Such criteria may include the academic merit of an applicant, the relevant practical experience of an applicant and the number of students who can be effectively accommodated in a programme or module having regard to the high level of personal interaction required between Master’s students and supervisors/study leaders.
