International Corporate Governance, Financial Regulation and Economic Law (LLM)

Course content

This innovative programme builds on the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies research expertise in company law, corporate governance, international economic law, financial regulation and financial law. The programme is taught by leading academics from the University of London and other European and North American universities.

This degree has been designed to appeal to law graduates as well as those who come from other disciplines such as business studies, international relations, finance and economics, and would like to learn more about the legal side of international economic relations particularly international financial markets and services and develop a specialised understanding of corporate governance concepts and the role of financial regulation in today's globalised financial markets. The Institute is uniquely qualified and situated to offer this academic law degree programme in London - the world's leading international financial centre.

The programme offers courses that analyse corporate governance, financial regulation and international economics and financial law from a European and comparative perspective. Some of the main themes include the role of international economic organisations in globalised financial markets and the emerging legal and regulatory institutions that govern European financial markets. The United Kingdom's legal and regulatory regime is an important area of focus, including the various institutional models of regulation. Although the programme's core courses focus mainly on an academic analysis of the relevant legal and regulatory concepts and principles, there are optional courses offered by legal and regulatory practitioners that address the practical aspects of corporate governance and financial regulation.
