This is a distinctive programme that provides a comprehensive postgraduate study package in the area of banking and finance law.

The programme will enable you to develop knowledge and skills in relation to the legal rules regulating the financial and capital markets in the UK, as well as at a global level. It will provide you with the opportunity to learn about the international regulatory frameworks in which banks and other financial institutions operate, as well as commercial financial issues such as the legal framework for international syndicated loans, bond issues, secured credit and insolvency.

You’ll investigate and apply the complex rules of banking and finance law to novel problems and real-world and hypothetical scenarios.

LLM International Banking and Finance Law is offered within the dynamic Centre for Business Law and Practice with all the facilities that a leading research-led university offers. This includes opportunities for extra-curricular activities that enhance transferable skills and develop your knowledge of law’s impact in the wider world.

The Centre for Business Law and Practice offers a wide range of experience and expertise in a number of fields, with links to the business community through, for example, the Advisory Board, which includes practitioners amongst its members. Industry and professional speakers regularly participate in conference and seminar events, which you’re encouraged to attend.

The Centre includes amongst its members internationally renowned researchers, and a number of teaching staff are qualified in the legal profession.

Course content

Compulsory modules studied throughout the year will give you the opportunity to:

  • explore the catalysts and consequences of modern banking crises
  • examine international approaches to banking supervision
  • discover the legal process involved in the regulation of banks
  • study syndicated lending and the issuing of bonds on the international capital markets.

All of these modules will be examined from an international perspective and do not simply focus on English law. These modules will also enable you to hone your legal research and writing skills, which you’ll be able to demonstrate in your dissertation – an independent piece of research on your chosen topic.

If you study with us, you’ll also benefit from our academic skills programme. This 10-week programme runs alongside your taught academic programme, and is specifically designed to meet the needs of home and international students in the School of Law. It allows you to refine and develop the academic and transferable skills needed to excel during your taught postgraduate programme, as well as prepare for professional roles after graduation.

The wide-ranging list of optional modules means that you can explore a diverse range of related subjects of interest to you.

If you are a part-time student, you’ll take four compulsory modules and choose two optional modules in your first year. You’ll then take the compulsory dissertation module and two optional modules in your second year to complete your programme.

Learning and teaching

All students meet weekly in the first semester for academic skills training. Support for the dissertation is provided via two group sessions, a number of one-to-one meetings and comment on draft work.

Independent study is integral to this programme – not just to prepare for classes but to develop research and other critical skills.

Assessment

Career opportunities

The International Banking and Finance programme enables graduates to pursue careers where success is built on the ability to understand, analyse and respond to developments in international banking and finance law. Graduates have gone on to work in a variety of roles including auditors, teachers and in top level positions within the banking industry.

The programme also provides a stepping stone to further research projects. A number of our students remain with us to pursue a research career as PhD students.

Careers support

The LLM in Banking and Finance Law provides a thorough grounding in the fundamental principles of international finance and financial services law, covering local and international developments from practical, regulatory and policy perspectives. A wide range of regulatory and transactional areas are covered including, monetary law, banking law, financial regulation, central banking, securities law, secured transactions, corporate finance and M&As, insolvency cross-border insolvency, electronic banking, financing of developing economies, EU financial law and business ethics. You can choose from a wide selection of modules to design a programme of study that best facilitates your interests.

Our academics are engaged in current banking and finance policy making and legal regulatory reforms. In light of the recent economic global crisis and the ensuing new regulations, modules have been developed to reflect these changes, for example ‘Islamic Finance and Commercial Law’ and ‘Ethics in Business and in Finance’. This has led to the creation of a seminar series, featuring prominent figures from both industry and academia.

Professional Module Exemptions

The Chartered Banker Institute (CBI) has recognised masters programmes offered by the School of Economics and Finance for advanced standing for the Chartered Banker Diploma. Graduates can proceed directly to the Chartered Banker Diploma with no requirement for prior underpinning study, recognising the high level of commonality of elements within LLM Law and Economics programme content against the CBI’s Diploma modules.

Networking opportunities

On many of our modules, you will have the opportunity to hear from and discuss with prominent figures from leading institutions, including the Bank of England, the World Bank, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the European Central Bank, the Bank for International Settlements, the International Monetary Fund, as well as partners in law firms from across the world.

Taught modules

To specialise in this area, you must select 90 credits of modules from this list and do your compulsory dissertation in the same field of law (45 credits). The additional 45 credits of taught modules can be in this area or can be unrelated and therefore selected from the full list of LLM available modules.

All modules are 22.5 credits unless otherwise stated below.

Note: Not all of the modules listed will be available in any one year. Any modules not available in the forthcoming academic session will be marked as soon as this information is confirmed by teaching academics.

Why this course?

In today’s unpredictable financial markets, strategic financial decisions and policies frequently need to be considered in relation to various legal requirements and constraints.

Business people increasingly need to have an understanding of the financial and accounting principles which underpin and inform legal regulation of financial institutions, financial instruments and financial markets.

Consequently, finance graduates who also have a strong legal knowledge, will be very attractive to a range of financial institutions and other organisations, both in the UK and overseas.

This joint masters programme between the Department of Accounting & Finance and the Law School addresses this skills gap in the global market by introducing students to both the legal aspects of regulation of international finance as well as to principles of accounting and finance.

You’ll study

The programme comprises both core and optional classes in finance and law.

It aims to provide students with a number of key learning outcomes:

1. To understand the core elements of financial theory and corporate financial theory.*
2. To understand key elements in financial law and regulation including the private law in respect of the structuring of individual transactions and the public law relevant to regulation of financial markets and institutions from the perspective of UK, EU and international law.*

* Students will have the option of developing skills in various specialist areas in finance or business and commercial law.

The programme also facilitates the development of various cognitive skills and non-subject specific skills.

You'll learn the ability to:
-reason systematically
-critically analyse and evaluate arguments
-utilise quantitative techniques
-work on an independent and group basis
-structure and resolve problems
-take decisions in complex situations
-exercise judgement in taking decisions in the absence of complete information and understanding
-use software packages; and, communicate and present ideas effectively
