LLM International Financial Law


Course Description

Course description
The aims of this course are to introduce you to the major regulatory and contractual issues in international financial services law and to relate these to broader business law issues. The contemporary problems and challenges to banking regulation and the global architecture of international finance will be addressed too. The course is suitable for graduates in law seeking careers in legal practice in any developed or developing country with a financial services or business law profile. It is also suitable for those looking to work directly in the financial services industry, especially those interested in compliance issues.
Coursework and assessment
Most course units are assessed by standard methods - either one unseen written examination, or one coursework essay, or a combination of these two methods of assessment. The assessment method of each individual course unit is listed in the course unit description on The School of Law website.
The course has a compulsory research component, in which students have the option of choosing either to submit two research papers of 7,000-8,000 words each (and each of the value of 30 credits) or writing a 14,000 to 15,000 words dissertation (60 credits).

Course unit details
Students take taught course units to a total value of 120 credits. This involves taking one core course unit ( International Financial Services Regulation ) of 30 credit value, and the remaining 90 credits from an approved list of commercial law options. Each individual course unit is of either 15 or 30 credits value.

Students whose first language is not English are required to hold one of the following English language qualifications:
- IELTS: minimum overall score of 7.0, with 7.0 in Writing and 6.5 in all other sub categories;
