Corporations in International Business Law

This module, taught and developed over 25 years, helps you to develop a coherent international perspective on business law as it relates to, and affects, corporations. We use our globalised economy as the context for an in-depth study of corporate law.

You will be asked to consider the view that a national corporate is merely a service which international business can access if it suits their needs. And you will critically assess and discuss the pros and cons of this perspective.

As we continue to interrogate this line of thought, you will have the opportunity to examine the strengths and weaknesses of UK corporate law - taking a comparative view when measuring UK corporate law against international standards. Strong links to practitioners will inform our insights.

Lancaster University is home to some of the most highly-regarded international business lawyers and scholars. This module draws upon 40 years of research experience and the expertise of a convenor with wide experience of doctoral candidate supervision.
