University of Sheffield – School of Law
Corporate and Commercial Law
First we explore the issues. Then we look at the existing law. After in-depth evaluation, we critique the law and suggest ways it might be improved.
Our distinctive style of teaching sharpens your critical faculties and equips you with the skills to research any unfamiliar area of law. Why? Because leading law firms and international companies tell us that's what they look for in a graduate.
