Course summary

About the course

If you are planning to specialise in the financial sector, the LLM International Financial Law is the perfect course for you! Combining two compulsory modules and two optional modules, the course offers everything you need for a solid foundation on which to build your career. The Banking Law module will give you an understanding of the role of banks in our economy, and the relevant regulatory schemes. You will also study the banker–customer relationship, the impact of new electronic payment systems, developments within money laundering regulations and the issue of bank resolution in the light of the global financial crisis. In the International Financial Law module you will examine financial law and approaches to key aspects of it, the regulation and supervision of financial institutions, international financial architecture, the role of credit rating agencies, and the nature of key debt and financial instruments, including International Bonds and Syndicated Loan Agreements.

Why choose this course?

The global financial crisis launched domestic and international finance to the forefront of the world’s consciousness. This course offers a critical analysis of the events, and examines the response of the world’s financial markets, as well as giving you the wider skills and knowledge you will need for a specialist career in the financial and banking sector. As you would expect from the Hertfordshire Law School, the teaching is delivered by specialists in their field, and is underpinned by cutting-edge research and regularly reviewed and updated to ensure it remains relevant and on topic.

What will I study?

Flexible and innovative teaching methods and focus on current global financial issues and challenges make this a very exciting degree. Teaching is delivered via class seminars and supported by a wide variety of practical work, including group discussions, small-group collaborations, role plays and debates, offering you a range of practice and experience to develop your skills of negotiation, persuasion, debating, presentation, teamwork and leadership. Written assignments require deeper independent study, to consolidate class learning and to enable you to develop the appropriate skills to formulate arguments and seek solutions to contemporary global financial issues. Group oral presentations help you develop and demonstrate teamwork, leadership, public speaking and time management skills, all necessary for any career. Further opportunities to develop your mentoring, teamwork and leadership skills are available through our peer support and mentoring scheme.
