Insurance is a key part of commercial law and practice. It is an enormous industry: in the UK it is second only to banking in terms of the number of employees and the revenues generated. London is one of the world’s leading centres for the industry, and, as well as hosting the head offices of many insurance companies, it is home to the Lloyd’s insurance market.

The LLM in Insurance Law was established by a leading expert in the field, Professor Philip Rawlings, with the aim of filling a significant gap in the current academic and professional training market. The programme will equip you with the knowledge, skills and practical tools needed to gain a thorough understanding of insurance law, practice and regulation.

Queen Mary University of London was the first UK university to offer a specialist LLM in Insurance Law. Insurance law modules have also proved popular among students taking other specialisms.

Insurance Law Institute

The Insurance Law Institute at Queen Mary was established in 2012 as part of the Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS) to support high quality teaching and research in all areas of Insurance Law.

Taught modules

To specialise in this area, you must select 90 credits of modules from this list and do your compulsory dissertation in the field of Insurance 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 modules.

All modules are 22.5 credits unless otherwise stated.

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

In the aftermath of the financial crisis, there is an increasing need among scholars of economics and those working in the field to identify and understand what Islamic economics is and how it can contribute to the western system of finance and multiculturalism. This, of course, poses the questions ‘What is the difference between the concept of “Islamic economics and finance” and that of pure “economics and finance”?’ and ‘Is “Islamic economics and finance” capable of contributing to a secular society?’ The four compulsory units of this programme meet the requirements of those who wish to improve their understanding of key Islamic economics, finance and banking concepts and practices that may have significant impact on their work. The programme is available on a part-time or full-time basis, and can also be offered intensively.

This programme is approved and credit-rated by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA).

Programme Aims

To provide an opportunity for students to acquire critical knowledge and training in Islamic economics, finance and banking.
To train employers/executives in banking, insurance and commercial sectors who wish to specialise in Islamic economics, finance and banking, with an opportunity to explore Arabic language (with specific focus) or Islamic studies which will assist them in expanding this area of the banking and finance industry.
To provide an opportunity for fresh graduates in related disciplines to specialise their knowledge in the area of Islamic economics and finance with the added option of Islamic studies.

Programme Elements

The programme is comprised of four compulsory units:

Islamic Economics and Finance will enable students to identify and understand the concepts and practices of Islamic economics and finance in conjunction with the definition and practical implementation of the western model of economics and finance. From a broader perspective, this unit will also enable students to understand Islamic financial engineering and liquidity management within the capital market context.

Islamic Commercial Law is designed to enable students to understand the sources, concepts and principles of Islamic law (Shari’ah), and its application in commercial transactions. This unit will enable students to analyse the main rulings of Islamic commercial law, including the prohibitions of interest, excessive uncertainty, and their rationale. From a broader perspective, it will enable students to comprehend the legal concepts underlying Islamic insurance products.

Applied Islamic Banking and Insurance will enable students to apply the core concepts of Islamic finance in an Islamic banking and insurance operation, to review and assess the commercial performance of Islamic financial institutions according to underlying Islamic principles, and critically compare the ideal concepts and practical implementation in Islamic and western banking and insurance.

Islamic Accounting and Auditing is designed to offer a comprehensive understanding of accounting for Islamic financial services, to enable students to analytically apply Islamic accounting principles and the related accounting regulatory framework into the context of business and social transactions in Islamic financial services, and review and assess the financial reporting and performance of Islamic financial institutions.

Career Opportunities

The focus of the degree is on equipping the professional ‘risk manager’. This role neither sets strategy nor runs operations - the professional risk manager (whether in private manufacturing or service industries, local government, healthcare, or non-profit sector) facilitates the risk management process, educates, informs and motivates others to manage risk, and provides expert advice and input on the tools of modern risk management. Job titles vary (risk manager, risk and insurance manager, risk analyst, risk co-ordinator, clinical risk manager) and the emphasis varies from organisation to organisation, sector to sector.

Programme Description

In an increasingly complex and rapidly changing global business environment, the management of risk requires a broad range of skills, knowledge and experience.

The MSc Risk Management programme provides an in depth understanding of risk and their application in practice both for financial and non-financial organisations. Students will learn both theoretical and practical understanding of risk including risk measurement and modelling using computer software (e.g. Palisade Decision Tools). In addition, we subscribe to several industry linked databases (e.g. Thomson Reuters EIKON) that students can use in their study and research.

Accredited by the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) and the Institute of Risk Management (IRM), this programme is designed to provide you with the skills to excel in a role as a risk manager, risk and insurance manager, risk analyst or clinical risk manager within a variety of organisations and sectors.

You will develop the ability to establish risk policy and structures for business units, design and review processes for risk management, develop risk response processes including contingency and business continuity programmes.

Our programme is based on current research and publications in the field, and taught by staff who understand the key concerns of managers in both the private and public sectors.
