Course detail

- Description -

The International Financial Law LLM focuses on the law, documentation and legal issues affecting major transactions in global financial markets (International loans and Bonds, International Project Finance, Derivatives and Securitisations), corporate mergers and acquisitions and their regulations under key legal regimes (EU, US and the UK), as well as international investment.

It will give you an in-depth understanding of many of the cutting edge transactions in this field (eg credit derivative structures and synthetic securitisations) as well as the volume of anticipated regulatory law now being enacted both in the EU and in the US in response to the financial market crisis of 2008. It will also cover allied legal disciplines strongly related to these topics such as Comparative Corporate Insolvency.

The LLM is strongly oriented towards a problem-solving approach, both as to legal rules and their practical use. It consequently has a clear practice orientation, but also employs critical analysis of the law and its development to the issues of the global financial market.

- Course purpose -

The LLM in International Financial Law consists of a strongly practice-oriented set of modules providing you with both the necessary legal knowledge and practical orientation necessary to practice in this field. While providing and expecting the highest level of academic rigour many of the modules will seek to train you to problem-solve and advise as practitioners in the global law firms or as investment banking counsel. The teaching in this area will be strongly international in outlook, in addition to being practice-oriented and intellectually challenging.

Aimed at recent law graduates (or graduates of joint degrees with a substantial legal content) as well as established legal or other professionals who may have graduated a number of years ago, the programme is rigorous and demanding.

- Course format and assessment -

In the first and second semester you study your selection of taught modules (half and full). These are in most cases assessed in the third semester (May/June) by written examination, or in some cases by the submission of an assessed essay.

Career prospects

In a competitive world we can give you the competitive edge to take your career to the next level. That’s why you’ll find our LLM programme is supplemented by opportunities to develop your skills and professional networks.

The result is that students are presented with a wide range of employment destinations when they leave; from positions at the European Central Bank, European Commission and UN to commercial roles as investment bank analysts, tax or public affairs advisers, as well as careers in the legal profession; accountancy; management consultancy; human rights organisations and other voluntary bodies; academia.

The Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance offers three Master programmes in Law. The focus of these Master programmes is on European Law and they are all bilingual, meaning that classes and exams are carried out both in English and in French. Each Master is a two-year programme. A student can choose to either follow the entire two-year programme or follow only the second year of a specialisation. Students must meet the specific requirements of admission in both cases. Each Master offers two specialisations in the second year. Applicants choose their specialisation during registration for the second year and indicate their motivation for a specific track already in their first year application. The Master degree is awarded upon successful completion of the second year.

Master en droit économique européen - LL.M.
Contentieux Européen
Droit Pénal Européen des Affaires
Master en droit financier européen et international - LL.M
Droit bancaire et financier européen
Droit fiscal européen international
Master en droit européen – LL.M.
Droit Européen Général
Droit Privé Européen
The first year is a course programme common to all three Master programmes in Law.

It serves to broaden the knowledge acquired during the bachelor studies and will provide students with a deeper insight into European law. With its emphasis on European, comparative and international law, the Master programme naturally reflects its proximity to several European institutions such as the Court of Justice, the General Court, the European Investment Bank, the European Investment Fund and the European Court of Auditors. Courses in the second year of the Master programmes are taught by experts from these institutions as well as other practitioners and faculty members. Courses in the first year are taught mainly by professors from the University and some invited professor.

The first year also prepares students for the requirements during the second year of the Master, where in each specialisation in-depth competencies and practical application of the relevant European law are achieved. An overview of the courses offered during the first year can be found under “Programme”. The diversity of courses ranges from general introduction and overview courses as well as more specialized topics that give an insight to the different tracks; students can freely choose from the range of courses (of which not all are taught every year) typically five courses per semester. Teaching relies on problem-based learning methods. In addition, the possibility for participation in Moot Court competitions to train in a “real-life” application of knowledge is an integral part of the programme. Preparatory language courses are offered to students, as well as continuous language training during the year.

Dual Master’s programme in which you develop an understanding and knowledge of comparative and international corporate, insolvency and European Law for a legal career with a strong international focus.
Since the start of the global financial crisis, there has been a surge in the number of companies that find themselves in financial difficulties. It has not only greatly increased the need for experts in insolvency law but has also profoundly changed this field of law. It has given insolvency law a much higher profile.
Insolvency is no longer a national issue. Due to globalisation, most companies have international contacts that have to be taken into account during a reorganisation or liquidation process. Given the new transnational scope of this field of law, the Faculty of Law at Radboud University and the Nottingham Law School have joined forces to offer students a unique Master’s programme that joins comparative and international insolvency and corporate law, thus meeting the demands and challenges of contemporary insolvency law.

Two Master’s degrees in one year

This dual LL.M programme will give you the opportunity of attaining two Master’s degrees in law in one academic year while living both in the Netherlands and the UK, thus adding to your personal international experience as well as increasing your knowledge. The courses taught at both campuses are presented in English, and you’ll enjoy the benefits of being taught by experts from both law schools.
Graduates of the insolvency law specialisation can expect to find a wide variety of employment prospects. These include law firms, financial institutions, multinationals and listed companies as well as governmental institutions and NGOs.

Why do the dual Master’s in Insolvency Law?

- You will participate in a unique and intense Master’s programme specialising in insolvency law.
- You will be awarded two LL.M degrees in the space of just one academic year: the LL.M Corporate and Insolvency Law from Nottingham Law School, and the LL.M European and Insolvency Law from Radboud University.
- You will study at a British Law School that was rated ‘excellent' by the British Law Society, and a Dutch Law School that was rated number one in the Netherlands for student satisfaction.
- You will work together with two prestigious research centres in the field of insolvency law: The NLS Centre for Business and Insolvency Law at Nottingham Law School, and the Business & Law Research Centre at Radboud University.
- You will be taught in a stimulating, collegial setting with small groups by internationally recognised professors of law, all specialists in their specific fields.
- You will have a chance to live in both Nijmegen in the Netherlands and Nottingham in the United Kingdom. The programme starts in the Netherlands and after the Christmas break you move to the UK.

Challenging, broad and interesting

During a reorganisation or liquidation process all (legal) relationships of a company are in a high state of tension and every aspect of a company is under severe scrutiny. This is what makes insolvency law a particularly challenging field of law, and the Master’s specialisation so broad and interesting. Experts in insolvency also need to deal with other fields such as corporate law, commercial law, administrative law and labour law.
At Radboud University and Nottingham Trent University we take a holistic approach to insolvency law while at the same time providing a level of practical detail through real-world scenarios. This ensures that our graduates get the relevant in-depth knowledge that is highly sought-after by employers all over Europe.

Career prospects

This Master’s specialisation is primarily designed for students who wish to pursue an international legal career in the area of insolvency law. It offers a thorough and broad education in insolvency law that includes corporate law, commercial law, labour law, personal bankruptcy law and competition law. And because it’s part of the European Law programme at Radboud University, you will also gain a good understanding of the internal and external markets of the European Union and the position of Europe in the world.

Job positions

As far as job positions go, it is seldom that you will find job positions advertised for insolvency law experts. That is not to say that these experts aren't highly sought after, especially since the start of the economic crisis. However, insolvency law experts will usually be part of a banking or corporate litigation team.
Graduates of Insolvency Law can expect to find a wide variety of employment prospects. You could work for financial institutions, multinationals and listed companies as well as governmental institutions and NGOs. There is also a high demand within the legal profession and judiciary for lawyers with thorough knowledge of insolvency law.

Our approach to this field

Besides the required knowledge of theories in Corporate, European and Insolvency law, and of insolvency law reform and policy, this specialisation specifically focuses on two aspects within the field of insolvency law:

1. Comparing national laws
When a company is in need of a corporate rescue, it has the possibility to use the legal instruments of several jurisdictions, not just the one in which it is located. This is known as forum shopping or regulatory arbitrage. To optimally do this, you need very good insight as to what’s out there. During this Master’s we teach students the basics they need to know to be able to compare the legal possibilities of several (European) countries.

2. Understanding the international consequences
If a company in, for example, the Netherlands goes bankrupt, what effect does this have in other countries? This dual Master’s teaches you how you can oversee the possible international consequences of relevant actions.
