Course summary

Course description

The LLM in International Financial Law offers you an opportunity to gain specialist knowledge in one of the most topical and high-profile areas of legal studies today.

Taught by experts in the field of financial regulation and securities markets, this course provides you with insights into the different specialist areas of financial law, and a deeper understanding of this complex discipline.

This course introduces the major regulatory and transactional issues in international financial and banking law, and is focused around two mandatory modules that deal with core aspects of international financial law, namely the regulation of financial markets and the law and practice of securities markets.

This LLM strikes an ideal balance between theory and practice to the benefit of both future practitioners and those looking for a career in academia.

Aims

  • To provide you with an in-depth understanding of the complex discipline of international financial and banking law.
  • Inform you about the current international financial services and banking sector.
  • Help you to develop analytical and research skills for the writing of a dissertation based on topics such as: international trade and corporate law, financial services regulation, European law, international economic law, intellectual property law, human rights law, corporate governance, and law and finance in emerging markets.

Teaching and learning

Our taught postgraduate courses include classes run by Manchester academics and a programme of assessed work. These are particularly suitable if you want to gain specialist knowledge in your chosen subject area. You may continue your studies in order to pursue an academic career, or go on to pursue your chosen field.

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 website.

The course has a compulsory research component, in which you have to submit a 14,000 to 15,000 words dissertation (60 credits). The research element of the course is supported by weekly research methodology lectures delivered throughout semesters one and two, designed to improve your legal writing and research skills. For specialised streams, your dissertation topic must be within those streams, but for general LLM dissertation topics, they must be within one of the course units you have chosen.
