Commercial Transactions

Commercial Transactions


Lawyers engaged in transactional practice do not often take part in litigation. Their main work involves research, drafting, negotiating and advising.

The Commercial Transactions stream focuses on transactions encountered in legal practice, from formation through to completion. 

Your lecturers will walk you through the steps of a transaction – including drafting and negotiation techniques – to ensure you are ready to advise and manage all legal components of a transaction.

I definitely recommend it if you want to cement where you are in practice at the moment and get a really practical grounding and a practical masters.
