Course summary

Overview

The pathway in International Financial Law is a widely respected specialist LLM with an international reputation. It focuses on the law, documentation and legal issues affecting major transactions in global financial markets and their regulation. It benefits from an unrivalled London location, and is taught by a practitioner-led faculty providing cutting edge teaching expertise in the field.

Course detail

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. 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 course is rigorous and demanding.

Teaching 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. Dissertation or research essays must be submitted in September, after the May/June examinations.

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 course 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 with global law firms located in London and other major financial centres and positions as in-house legal counsel with investment banks as well as positions at the European Central Bank, European Commission and UN.
